  accept() system call is inconsistent with bind(), connect()

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Under kernel 3.2.0-54 and 3.9.3 (at least), the accept() system call
  in a PF_LOCAL, AF_LOCAL, SOCK_STREAM context returns an addrlen for
  the sockaddr_un structure that is too large by one.

  As the SUN_LEN macro of the sys/un.h header shows, the "length" of the
  structure is expected to be the strlen() of the sun_path member, plus
  that member's offset.  This is the length used by bind() and
  connect(), in particular.  But accept() consistently returns a
  "length" which includes the trailing null, and is thus too large by
