Hi Eric :-)

I want to use soreceive() to avoid copying mbufs into a user buffer.
I guess I have to hold the bsdnet_semaphore around soreceive().
But once I got hold of the mbuf chain - is it safe to access / use / release
it without holding the semaphore (well, maybe I need to hold it
for freeing the chain)?

Thanks for saving me time.
