I've run into one further problem here: It seems that the socket
attached to the pipe is already bound when the appliance comes up,
because I get an "Address already in use error" when I call bind(2) on
/dev/vport0p1 from the appliance side.

I'd been planing to listen on the appiance end of the pipe, and have
clients connect from the host end. Is that not possible?
