Thanks for looking at this! I certainly have overlooked this case.
I wonder, if we allow sendto with valid NULL pointer and positive
msg_namelen to work, why don't we do the same for recvmsg, as in
replacing the VERIFY_WRITE case non-null check with an
access_ok(VERIFY_WRITE, ...) check? We can even get rid of the check
because recvmsg will do it nonetheless when copying the sockaddrs to
user space. So kern_msg->msg_name can always be set to kern_address.
Otherwise I would just set msg_namelen = 0, too, and just not handle
passed in NULL pointers to sockaddrs.
