I'd like to add that this is indeed not passing data to the OS, as
verified by strace. Also, I have now figured out the commit introducing
the regression, namely 8399e7af5 ("Generic port facility provides
buffering uniformly"); the commit before (e8eeeeb1d) still runs the
above code to completion.

I'd be somewhat motivated to try coming up with a fix, and turn the
above snippet into a testcase, but I guess I could use some hinting in
the right direction.

Regards, Rotty
