Thanks for continuing your excellent work on luasocket. It's become a
required part of most of my lua efforts.

I noticed that "unix.c" didn't get updated to include the function
name changes from "opt_linger", etc to "opt_set_linger".

This prevents the unix domain socket support file from compiling.

I'll be performing more comprehensive tests and review in the upcoming
days and will provide feedback if necessary.

Thanks again,
