Why are you concerned about fragmentation?
Provided you don't set INP_HDRINCL then the kernel will include relevant IP headers and handle fragmentation for you (at least that's my understanding looking at NetBSD's code).

The only extra overhead you should have is writing the UDP header which is pretty straight forward.
