Rust bindings for Linux AF_PACKET (raw) sockets, including Async wrapper for use with async_std or futures, based on async_io.

Packet sockets are used to receive or send raw packets at the device driver (OSI Layer 2) level. They allow the user to implement protocol modules in user space on top of the physical layer. -- packet(7)
