config UNIX
bool "Unix domain sockets"
If you say Y here, you will include support for Unix domain sockets;
sockets are the standard Unix mechanism for establishing and
accessing network connections. Many commonly used programs such as
the X Window system and syslog use these sockets even if your
machine is not connected to any network. Unless you are working on
an embedded system or something similar, you therefore definitely
want to say Y here.
Say Y unless you know what you are doing.
config AF_UNIX_OOB

default y
config UNIX_DIAG
tristate "UNIX: socket monitoring interface"
depends on UNIX
default n
Support for UNIX socket monitoring interface used by the ss tool.
If unsure, say Y.
