------------------

From: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com>

[ Upstream commit d84ba638e4ba3c40023ff997aa5e8d3ed002af36 ]

This issue come from ruby language community. Below test program
hang up when only run on Linux.

% uname -mrsv
Linux 2.6.26-2-486 #1 Sat Dec 26 08:37:39 UTC 2009 i686
% ruby -rsocket -ve '
BasicSocket.do_not_reverse_lookup = true
serv = TCPServer.open("127.0.0.1", 0)
s1 = TCPSocket.open("127.0.0.1", serv.addr[1])
s2 = serv.accept
s2.close
s1.write("a") rescue p $!
s1.write("a") rescue p $!
Thread.new {
s1.write("a")
}.join'
ruby 1.9.3dev (2010-07-06 trunk 28554) [i686-linux]
#<Errno::EPIPE: Broken pipe>
[Hang Here]
FreeBSD, Solaris, Mac doesn't. because Ruby's write() method call
select() internally. and tcp_poll has a bug.

SUS defined 'ready for writing' of select() as following.

| A descriptor shall be considered ready for writing when a call to an output
| function with O_NONBLOCK clear would not block, whether or not the function
| would transfer data successfully.

That said, EPIPE situation is clearly one of 'ready for writing'.

We don't have read-side issue because tcp_poll() already has read side
shutdown care.

| if (sk->sk_shutdown & RCV_SHUTDOWN)
| mask |= POLLIN | POLLRDNORM | POLLRDHUP;

So, Let's insert same logic in write side.
