    Ok.  We have a three-pronged approach.  I just committed the kernel side
    of things and I'll 'fix' libc_r tomorrow.  Joerg will continue to work
    on fixes to STDIO.

    Basically libc_r will only have to set O_NONBLOCK for accept() and
    connect() and that's it.  read/write/pread/pwrite will be converted
    to __pread and __pwrite calls, readv/writev/preadv/pwritev will be
    converted to __preadv/__pwritev, and all the socket message calls
    (recv*(), send*()) will use the new MSG_ flags.
