Can I urge you to try the following first:

# define SOCK_CLOEXEC 02000000

And tell the bionic maintainers that this macro and O_CLOEXEC and other 
similar system calls (pipe2, dup3, accept4) are a must in any thread-safe 
software. We really need them.

The accept4 system call, the last one of them to be introduced, came about in 
kernel 2.6.28, the other ones in 2.6.27.

PS: if you're reading this and you want to run Wayland on your non-Linux 
system, you should also add those to your OS. Yesterday.
