Subject: Need to zero pads in msghdr

Hi,

In this patch
http://git.musl-libc.org/cgit/musl/commit/arch/x86_64/bits/socket.h?id=7168790763cdeb794df52be6e3b39fbb021c5a64
you suppose that the kernel ignores the upper 32 bits of msg_iovlen,
but it doesn't, so pads in msghdr structures have to be zeroed before
calling sendmsg and recvmsg syscalls.

Thanks,
Andrei
