I have applied my patch in the TeX Live SVN, r48217,
since that is accepted in the experimental branch in the
Thus local url = require("socket.url") is expected to work on
any platform if luatex is rebuilt.
However in most cases, new binaries are not made until the
next year. So the best workaround now may be to change the
script as
local url = socket.url or require("socket.url")
