Thanks for the reply.
Can I still use the same receiving function for sendmsg/send and tell what
kind of message is coming?
How would I tell if there is an fd attached or not?
Even if I set cmsg_level and cmsg_type it won't let me send it. The problem
is having a zero length attachment on freebsd....
I can't send -1 as fd because that errors to invalid file descriptor.

I'm porting a project to fbsd and I have problem with this part that
in linux but not fbsd when fd = -1.
I get "invalid argument" from sendmsg() when setting CMSG_LEN(0).
Anyone have a clue how to correctly do this on fbsd?
It sounds like you're trying to send an empty cmsg. The error may
happen because your msg_controllen field is inconsistent with your
cmsg_len field. You're setting msg_controllen as if there were a full
cmsg, but then cmsg_len says that there is no cmsg. Or maybe the
error is because (just guessing) FreeBSD doesn't allow sending empty
or undefined cmsgs. Notice that cmsg_level and cmsg_type are
undefined in the case where fd == -1. POSIX doesn't say whether
sendmsg supports empty cmsgs, but why bother? You could just use send
instead of sendmsg if you're not sending a file descriptor.
I think it's a standards interpretation thing.
what data do you send WITH the message? I assume you have some in-band
data as well.
if you have no FD, just use "sendto()."
the other end will still be able to do a recvmesg() but will discover
no added info.
