  o There are two methods to get a process credentials over the unix
  1) A sender sends SCM_CREDS message to a reciever, struct cmsgcred;
  2) A reciever sets LOCAL_CREDS socket option and gets sender
  credentials in control message, struct sockcred.
  Both methods use the same control message type SCM_CREDS with the
  same control message level SOL_SOCKET, so they are indistinguishable
  for the receiver.  A difference in struct cmsgcred and struct sockcred
  layouts may lead to unwanted effects.
  Now for sockets with LOCAL_CREDS option remove all previous linked
  SCM_CREDS control messages and then add a control message with
  struct sockcred so the process specifically asked for the peer
  credentials by LOCAL_CREDS option always gets struct sockcred.
