Each worker process has it's own socket, identified by SO_COOKIE.
Such sockets belong to same reuseport group. BPF is used to route
packets with the same key (injected into DCID when connection is 
established) to the same socket.

The reload part is not yet complete. New connections may reach old
workers. Since worker knows it is terminating, it will not accept
such connection. Client will retry, and next time it will probably
reach new worker (or the old one again).

You cannot touch old socket, since it is needed to work with existing
connections in old worker (and it needs to be in reuseport group, so 
that packets could reach proper worker).

As I said, there still work to do in regard to reloads and upgrades.
