I was able to compile my driver using user space library libc.a. But when I run the Linux executable, it runs this driver very early in the bootup process such that I have not setup the ethernet eth0 interface.
So the output looks like:
Not able to connect to remote client...
Then...I see the config on the eth0.
So I wanted to compile the driver as a loadable module but now I have problems compiling due to errors of the users space socket system calls like "socket", "connect", "setsockopt", as undefined. How could I do it?

require arch support, but I don't the the namespace stuff is among them).
You can. That's how UML drivers generally work. See pcap and vde for

a couple of drivers that pull in libraries.
