This matches what udevd sets for the buffer.

This method ends up setting the SO_RCVRBUFFORCE socket options. So we're
not allocating 128 MB in userspace - IIUC it just lets the kernel expand
it upto 128 MB if needed.  This is a privileged operation however, so
we better make sure we don't call this when running non-root.
