The struss output is broken because sendmsg only takes 3 arguments. It seems 
that java passes bogus data in msg_flags and possibly msg_control and 
msg_controllen fields of struct msghdr:

(gdb) p *m
$4 = {msg_name = 0x0, msg_namelen = 0, msg_iov = 0x5dee4e00, msg_iovlen = 2, 
msg_control = 0x29012e74, msg_controllen = 10480328, msg_flags = 740777920}
