I was using AF_PACKET+SOCK_DGRAM instead of AF_PACKET+SOCK_RAW. I can't
think of a reason for it to make a difference, although it did make things
a little bit easier (I didn't have to construct the ethernet header myself
- just pass the dest address into sendto() and let the driver fill in the
src address).
