OK, I've done that now.  The branch contains a few sendmsg fixes, a first cut of 
a recvmsg implementation, and a merge from master.  I've done some testing of 
recvmsg, but many things are not yet tested.  I'll work on continued testing next.

Are you aware of any test suite that I could run?  I've been using examples from 
Kerrisk's book, because that's what I read to learn the basics of sockets.  But 
those are just examples and are not meant to be comprehensive.
