SubjectRe: Should O_NONBLOCK be copied from listening socket to accepting socket?
   From: Michael Shields <shields@msrl.com>

Is it required that the O_NONBLOCK flag be copied from a listening
socket to an accepted socket? Dan Bernstein believes this is a
bug.

If we "fixed" this every inetd on every Linux system would
unfortunately stop working. So we have to remain bug compatible.

Alexey tried to do this "fix" and when I tested his change we spotted
this issue and thus did not put the "fix" in what we sent to Linus.
