Well I created a pull request on upstream dev branch which was
accepted and merged a few minutes later. I'm glad they are so

But they are in the process of stabilizing zeromq v4.1.0 (they are in
RC currently) and I'm afraid this code won't be merged there, so we
will have to wait for another late release before dropping the patch
from buildroot...
