Why you are trying to do this with a balancer module?  You won't 
be able to do this with a balancer module anyway, as you'll have 
to call setsockopt() on a socket after it's created but before the 
connect() is called, which is only possible with modifications to 

Try following proxy_bind implementation as already suggested.
