For controlling output buffering, there is the setvbuf buffer size, and
"force-output".  In Guile 2.2 the CBOP's "write" function is really a
"flush" function -- it only gets called when the internal buffer is
filled, or when flush-output is called, or (for line-buffered ports)
when a newline is written.

Why do you not want buffering when reading?  Do you need to hand off
this FD to some other process?
