sendmsg() is a big hair ball. And yes, I have all sorts of things on
my wish list that touch sendmsg(). I don't think, I'll get them
fullfilled anytime soon, though:

 - sendmsg() does lots of different things: sending on unconnected
sockets, sending file descriptors, sending unix decriptors, and
plain-old sending data. These operations have very different security
properties and implications. It would be awesome if BPF filters could
filter these different types of operations selectively.

 - ancillary data is a cool concept in general. We should use it more.
If I could send a memory mapping from one process to another, that
would solve so many problems. But I know, I am dreaming; I don't
expect to see this feature any time soon.
