Issue #8159 has been updated by h.shirosaki (Hiroshi Shirosaki).

File 0001-Fix-multicast-of-rinda.patch added

I created a patch to fix test errors.
It seems a socket should be binded to another non multicast address and join a multicast group.

I got it from the following examples.

Seems latest Rinda-related changes affected build under Windows:

http://ci.rubyinstaller.org/job/ruby-trunk-x64-test-all/936/console

   2) Error:
 test_take_bug_8215(Rinda::TupleSpaceProxyTest):

   3) Error:

     C:/Users/Worker/Jenkins/workspace/ruby-trunk-x64-build/test/rinda/test_rinda.rb:542:in `test_make_socket_ipv4_multicast'

r39895 seems to have introduced a test that is not skipping on non-fork() platforms.
