"whatever you want"... I think your statement seems a little strange,
but, ... ok, as you want.

Anyway, so, what is the benefit to use __u32 for the members of
"struct ip_mreq_source", even though "struct ip_mreq" uses in_addr?
Such __u32 definition makes application programmers confuse and use
"#ifdef Linux" or "#ifndef Linux" stuff in their codes.
What is your favor?
