Some of the patches that attempted to fix the nfsd server code relied
on making the TCP stuff blocking. I've seen several such patches
floating around that ignore the fact that the socket lock is dropped
when the IPV4 socket code sleeps.

In any case, even with nonblocking TCP, one has to protect the socket
until the entire message has been sent. Otherwise we risk seeing
another thread racing for the socket while we're doing whatever needs
to be done to clear the -EAGAIN.
