data than requested even when sufficient data is available on the
receive queue.

A patch is definitely in progress. I'm a little confused as
to the difference between unix_detach_fds() and scm_fp_dup()
in the MSG_PEEK versus !MSG_PEEK paths in unix_stream_recvmsg(),
however once I figure that out a patch should be forthcoming.
