Well, I don't think that man pages in this particular area are outdated.
man 2 and 7 for socket and other relevant 'man 2' pages were updated
less than a year ago (end 2008/beginning 2009) and should represent all
kernel 2.6.27/glibc 2.9 possibilities.

Probably these are not the ultimate docs, but I guess this is much more
fresh then most of documents/FAQs/tutorials you can find in the Net.
