Ticket #826 was fixed by your commits 17601-17603 and their respective
followups. It is pretty fine with me and I haven't complained anymore.

Noone was asking to bypass the IP_ADD_SOURCE_MEMBERSHIP on the *client-side*.
The problem was on the server side and it was fixed already.

You're still not getting the point.
On the server side:
1) Source-filters should NEVER be made compulsory for ASM
2) Source-filters must be used for SSM (otherwise it doesn't work).
This is now correctly implemented both in trunk and in 0.8.6-branch.
And yes, if you reintroduce compulsory source filters on the server side,
I will have no other chance than to complain again, and not only due
to IGMPv3 bugs. I won't complain if you make them optional (default=off).

This is valid comment. So the proper implementation should IMHO look like
- try IP_ADD_SOURCE_MEMBERSHIP first
- fallback to IGMPv2 with your hacks if it fails
The same applies for MLDv2.
