Hmm, not much we can do about that... sigh... well, adding the following
code to the beginning of sockargs() should take care of that:

	 * We can't allow socket names > 255 in length, since that
	 * will overflow sa_len.
	if (type == MT_SONAME && (u_int)buflen > 255)
		return (EINVAL);

Thank you very much for the sanity checks!  Much appreciated!
