Description of problem:
The traceroute on red hat 7.3 and 8.0 is broken. It does not process the -i
option correctly. Instead of binding the send socket to the interface, it simply
sources the packets from the interface address.

The traceroute package on 7.3 is broken outright. The 8.0 version includes a
loose source routing patch that has the correct setsockopt() call, however large
protions of the patch are commented out, including the correct setsockopt()

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
strace traceroute -i eth1 foo
