First it would be best if you comment on the patch code where it is relevant.
Second why did you drop email addresses from CC that's not polite.

But to your point. The two places I added return checks is because they

slen is hard-coded and there is no such field in struct sockaddr.

Other then that I added some prints in the error paths, again, because they
might fail only on BSD. I don't see the point of adding the prints in a separate
