Question Is sock_sendmsg MP safe

Hi All,
linux sock interface 'sock_sendmsg' is not MP safe?
I am getting corruption problems when multiple processes
try to send data thru same socket.
In the function 'unix_stream_sendmsg', I don't see any lock taken
before the 'while loop' of adding skb to peer's receive queue.
Any idea on this?
