    SubjectOOB handling
    Hi!

    While porting a program to linux, I noticed strange thing with out-of-band
    data handling. After looking at the kernel source, I found that only one
    byte of OOB data can be handled on linux. Am I correct?

    That is, urg_data is u32, and only one byte is used for data.
    So recv(...,MSG_OOB) only returns single byte, and if called again
    it returns EINVAL because urg_data==URG_READ.

    The question is: is this the right thing? I was under impression that OOB
    data can be any size.

    Alexander.
