Same problem as the other CLOEXEC: you can't guarantee that the kernel
you're running on understands these flags.
I haven't checked the kernel sources, but if it uses flags here like in
open(2), it will ignore unknown flags. That means you get no indication
that the kernel doesn't support MSG_CMSG_CLOEXEC.
In other words, do fcntl(fd, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC) anyways.
