	while trying to write an application that uses socket messages
	(both SCM_CREDS and SCM_RIGHTS), i discovered that these are
	currently broken.  all attempts to use them get EMSGSIZE.


	the regression test for this fails (src/regress/sys/kern/unfdpass):

		splode sys/kern/unfdpass> make regress
		unfdpass: child sendmsg: Message too long
		unfdpass: recvmsg: Message too long
		*** Error code 1
		splode sys/kern/unfdpass>
