Bug#907541: [openjdk-8] Bind to a multicast address fails

Hi Andre,

> This was supposed to be fixed upstream in Java 12:
> https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8210493

> https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8216417

thanks for this information bundle, it helps tremendously.

> As far as I am aware, it works with current Java versions in Debian (>= 13).

As far as I understand, the original patch indeed introduced issues,
so it’s probably not something we want to have in 8 and 11. The fix
in 13+ is not backportable because they basically rewrote the entire
socket classes’ implementations.

I guess this won’t be fixed in 8 and, more importantly, 11 currently.
