This is already supported.  However, the pre-opened fd would be for a
listening socket.

The main problem is that even though a single port is used on the
destination, it is used for multiple connections.  Migration would
require an arbitrary number of streams, and I'm afraid supporting this
would basically entail rewriting all the tunnelling code.
