Hi Ludovic,

Sorry for not commenting before...  I've reviewed the history, and
started looking through the patches, and I'm feeling (possibly)
confused.  Am I correct in thinking that the "problem" here (which you
are aiming to solve) only affects unbuffered ports?

If that's right, I'm not clear why the solution is involving so much
restructuring - can't it be done without introducing the new "read"
