This would be more a case of effort / payoff. I'm not saying it isn't
technically possible. But effort may be better spent implementing new
features people have been asking for (we have some kick-ass stuff
upcoming). Rather than implementing an OS kernel version detection with

Comparing it to kqueue isn't quite the same. On operating systems that
do not support SO_REUSEPORT (including older Linux kernels) you will not
be able to use the option at all. The problem here is FreeBSD has the
option, it just has a different behaviour. I'm not even sure it is
possible to detect in a build system without maintaining a blacklist.

I have mixed feelings on this. I believe for a majority of users this
isn't a problem so users will see a warning that could concern them when
in reality in a majority of cases it doesn't affect them.
Since it isn't enabled by default a user would have to research and make
a conscious choice to turn it on. I would hope at this point the user
would have made an informed decision when enabling tuning directives.
