Trying to do a seemless reload while at least one socket has been bound to
a specifig interface will lead to a segfault, because the guy who wrote that
code did it by copying/pasting, and forgot to change an instance of
"namespace" to "iface".
The attached patch should fix it.

Subject: [PATCH] MINOR: seemless reload: Fix crash when an interface is

When doing a seemless reload, while receiving the sockets from the old process
the new process will die if the socket has been bound to a specific
This happens because the code that tries to parse the informations bogusly
try to set xfer_sock->namespace, while it should be setting wfer_sock->iface.

This should be backported to 1.8.
