 From a quick look at soreceive_dgram() and some dtrace-ing, it seems that each 
time recvmsg() is called soreceive_dgram() gets an mbuf chain where the first 
mbuf is MT_SONAME (8), the second one is MT_CONTROL (14) and only the third one 
is MT_DATA.

Could it be that data in the first two mbuf-s (especially the MT_CONTROL one) is 
reported by FIONREAD?  Or, in other words, accounted in sb_acc?
But then it's not actually returned, of course, in recvmsg() ?
