So here's my extended version. It adds some varargs support so that
the address family can be omitted, (defaulting to AF_INET), which
is much better than my previous patch since this won't break existing
code. It also doesn't move to an enum for the stream type to avoid
breaking existing code.

It also then goes on to provide a varargs bind and connect so that when
using AF_UNIX one does not have to pass a useless hostname argument.

This is a complete series suitable for applying as is, (it replaces my
previous patch). I still didn't get as far as adding a test case yet.
