Although the AF_LOCAL SCM_CREDS ancillary message passing is of great
help, I noticed that it does not pass the PID of the process sending
the message. This would be useful in the case of for instance, a
Although extending sockcred to add the PID would probably be trivial,
I'm wondering if it's a good idea (it would break binary ABI without
compat code, and is tricky because groups are of arbitrary size at the
end of the structure). I guess that it also would be possible to
create a new SCM_PID or similar.
Anyone familiar with precedents for this, or with alternative
suggestion? It appears that ancillary messages are largely
OS-specific in general.
