The connectx3 sockopt buffer contains a pointer to the user buffer
that contains the actual addresses.
So a second copy_from_user() is needed.

This does mean that this option can only be actioned from userspace.

Kernel code can get the same functionality using one of the
other interfaces to connectx().
