Okay, APM is still a big mess for this Laptop, but I had a chance to try out the above patch. As expected this at least prevents hitting the "protocol is buggy" message in dev.c. If other people want to try, the file af_packet.c located in net/packet (and not in net/core).

I intent to try to dump this depricated socket use in the application, needs some experimentation and testing. So far so good.

Kind regards,
