            Bug ID: 236737
           Summary: recvmsg() under COMPAT_FREEBSD32 returns the wrong
                    msg_controllen value
           Product: Base System
           Version: 12.0-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern

udp recvmsg with IP_RECVDSTADDR, IP_RECVTTL and IP_RECVIF setsockopts enabled

The returned msg_controllen is shorter under FreeBSD AMD64 12.0-RELEASE with
COMPAT_FREEBSD32 mode compared to the same value on an actual i386 system.

While the returned msg_controllen is shorter, the corresponding cmsg_len values
remain the same.
This causes the last cmsg to exceed the msg_control[0:msg_controllen] buffer.
This does not seem to be detected using the CMSG_NXTHDR/CMSG_DATA macros.

This behavior triggers unit test failures in the Go golang.org/x/net package.
A workaround has been applied in
https://go-review.googlesource.com/c/net/+/168297 where the kernel returned
msg_controllen is effectively extended to size passed by the caller.

Attached is a C demonstrator based on one of the unit tests.
