I have added a patch that implements the requested options. In addition, these options as well as their IPv4 counterparts are now also supported on RAW sockets.

So the patch implements:
o IP_MULTICAST_TTL for RAW IPv4 sockets
o IP_MULTICAST_IF for RAW IPv4 sockets
o IP_MULTICAST_LOOP for RAW IPv4 sockets
o IPV6_MULTICAST_HOPS for UDP and RAW IPv6 sockets according to RFC3493 section 5.2
o IPV6_MULTICAST_IF for UDP and RAW IPv6 sockets according to RFC3493 section 5.2
o IPV6_MULTICAST_LOOP for UDP and RAW IPv6 sockets according to RFC3493 section 5.2

(file #52343)

+1 for requesting these options be exposed in the sockets API in addition to core. We've got threaded apps that are using the sockets API and my understanding is that there is not a thread-safe workaround to use the core API in this case.

Right. Someone needs to clean up those patches into smaller ones that are more easily reviewable... I'd do it if I found the time, but I failed to do that in the last months... :-(

You're right, after some more searching I found this patch: https://savannah.nongnu.org/patch/?func=detailitem&item_id=9257

From my understanding, core support is implemented, but the options are not yet available in the socket API.

Isn't this a duplicate? I think we already have a bug, task or patch for this.

The following socket options related to multicast for IPv6 seem to be missing:

IPV6_MULTICAST_LOOP
IPV6_MULTICAST_HOPS
IPV6_MULTICAST_IF

(see http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man7/ipv6.7.html)

These options are used by the open62541 library for implementing OPC UA PubSub (see https://open62541.org/).
