Just FYI:

Cilium has implemented this kind of shortcut with sockmap and sockops.
In fact, for intra-OS case, it is _very_ simple. The core code is less
than 50 lines. Please take a look here:

Like I mentioned in my LSF/MM/BPF proposal, we plan to implement
similiar eBPF things for inter-OS (aka VM) case.

More importantly, even LD_PRELOAD is not needed for this eBPF approach.
