Support AF_PACKET address family (tcpdump/wireshark...)

From https://github.com/Microsoft/BashOnWindows/issues/1628

It would be great to get support for AF_PACKET, as some networking tools or software rely on that.

Samples of tool that won't work without it:
- tcpdump (socket: Invalid argument)
- wireshark
- some nmap functions
- Scapy
