The question is what is the correct type to define socklen_t with, if it's not 

On one hand, POSIX says it's an integer type with at least 32-bits, and 
depending on version, unsigned, or unspecified signedness. On the other hand, 
it must match whatever the pointer type is for the 6th argument of recvfrom(), 
the 3rd argument of getsockname() and the 3rd argument of getpeername().
