For gen_tcp:connect/3,4 it is possible to specify a specific source port, which should be enough to bind the socket to an address with that port before connecting.

Unfortunately that feature was lost in OTP-17216 that made it mandatory to specify the source address to get an address binding, and ignored a specified source port if no source address was specified.

That bug has now been corrected.

Full runtime dependencies of kernel-8.0.2: crypto-5.0, erts-12.0, sasl-3.0, stdlib-3.13
