       socketcall - socket system calls

       int socketcall(int call, unsigned long *args);

       socketcall()  is a common kernel entry point for the socket system calls.  call determines
       which socket function to invoke.  args points to a block containing the actual  arguments,
       which are passed through to the appropriate call.

       User  programs  should call the appropriate functions by their usual names.  Only standard
       library implementors and kernel hackers need to know about socketcall().

       This call is specific to Linux, and should not be used in programs intended to  be  porta-

       On  a  some  architectures--for	example,  x86-64 and ARM--there is no socketcall() system
       call; instead socket(2), accept(2), bind(2), and so on really are implemented as  separate
       system calls.

       accept(2),  bind(2), connect(2), getpeername(2), getsockname(2), getsockopt(2), listen(2),
       recv(2), recvfrom(2), recvmsg(2), send(2),  sendmsg(2),	sendto(2),  setsockopt(2),  shut-
       down(2), socket(2), socketpair(2)
