Yes, I know what EFAULT means. The interesting part is that I can find one
single call to recvmsg() in the UNIX part of BIND, and there the argument is
on the stack...

strace doesn't show the address except when something fails, but these are
the distinct calls to recvmsg with given addresses (sorted):

[pid 13365] recvmsg(20, 0x56131f60, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(22, 0x56131f60, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(22, 0x56132980, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(22, 0x561329b0, 0) = -1 EFAULT (Bad address)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(23, 0x56131ef0, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(23, 0x56132540, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(23, 0x56132870, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(23, 0x561328a0, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(23, 0x56132940, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(23, 0x561329b0, 0) = -1 ECONNRESET (Connection reset by peer)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(26, 0x56132910, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(28, 0x561324f0, 0) = -1 EFAULT (Bad address)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(28, 0x56132840, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(28, 0x56132840, 0) = -1 EFAULT (Bad address)
[pid 13365] recvmsg(29, 0x56132840, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)

Note that there's multiple EFAULTs in there, and some even go against an
address that was valid at some point... I think there's something fishy in
here.
