getsockaddrarg() is an internal C function in the socket module implementation used in a number of socket methods (bind(), connect(), connect_ex(), sendto(), sendmsg()) for creating C structure sock_addr_t from Python tuple. Error messages raised when pass incorrect socket address argument to these function contain the name "getsockaddrarg" despite the fact that it is not directly exposed at Python level, nor the name of standard C function.

>>> import socket
>>> s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
>>> s.bind(42)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: getsockaddrarg: AF_INET address must be tuple, not int
>>> s.bind(())
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: getsockaddrarg() takes exactly 2 arguments (0 given)

I think that error messages shouldn't refer to non-existing function "getsockaddrarg()".

This issue is a part of more general issue28261.
