Subject: Re: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] ISCSI: iscsi_process_read callback for when the iscsi socket becomes readable may be invoked by qemu after the fd-is-readable event has cleared.

The idea was that by being very caredul with FIONREAD  I can guarantee
non-blocking behaviour without relying on making the socket
The only purpose of making the socket non-blocking was to ensure that
writes dont block due to the lack of a FIONWRITE ioctl.

But, the code becomes simpler.

Ill apply your patch to libiscsi.  Thanks. Ignore this patch to qemu.
