Coverity claims the call to rdma_gid2ip in cma_igmp_send overwrites addr. Use a consistent definition of sockaddr to prevent detections and code changes in the future.

From what I see, sockaddr does not have any alignment requirements, and the strongest is sockaddr_in6 for 4 bytes. sockaddr_storage ensures 8 bytes when needed.
