MSG_CMSG_CLOEXEC is not (yet) in POSIX (although it has been proposed
for addition); therefore, at the moment, it only exists on Linux and
Cygwin.  Does this need to have conditional code to allow compilation on
BSD, such as:


as well as fallback code that sets FD_CLOEXEC manually via fcntl() when
MSG_CMSG_CLOEXEC is missing?

Good point.  I think the answer is yes.  Just like qemu_open() we can
wrap "recvmsg(2) with fd" so that platforms with MSG_CMSG_CLOEXEC use
that flag and other platforms use qemu_set_cloexec().


Thanks for pointing this out.  I'll make the updates in v5.
