AF_UNIX status report

I've made at least rudimentary implementations of all the fhandler_socket_unix
functions (including those in select.cc) for which there were previously only
I've pushed everything to topic/af_unix, including a merge with master as of a
couple days ago.
I've cobbled together a few test programs and put them in
winsup/cygwin/socket_tests on the topic/af_unix branch. I haven't taken the
time to automate the tests, so they all have to be run interactively. There is
a Makefile to build the test programs and a README.txt that shows how to run them.
One thing I haven't yet done is to think about (or systematically test) datagram
sockets. I'm sure there's quite a bit of code that won't work for them.
Aside from datagram sockets, there are still a few things that I'm working on,
but I'm close to the point where I could use some input:
1. I've littered the code in fhandler_socket_unix.cc and select.cc with FIXME
comments on which I'd like advice.
2. I haven't given any thought at all as to how to implement SCM_RIGHTS
ancillary data. I could definitely use suggestions on that before I start
