OK; I didn't look close enough; you are right.

Another point would be to signal an error for a socket operation with unsupported flags, like O_NONBLOCK here. In the end it's probably better to remove O_NONBLOCK from the call reather than assuming it would have an effect in this case.

The other question (for the kernel developers) is whether the file structure is the best place to pass flags like O_NONBLOCK then.
