Since the results were too variable with only 20 runs, I've also tested
this with 100 for three kernels, stock 4.3, 4.3 plus the published
patch, 4.3 plus the published patch plus the "just return EAGAIN"
modification". The 1st and the 3rd perform about identical for the
test program I used (slightly modified version included below), the 2nd
is markedly slower. This is most easily visible when grouping the
printed data rates (B/s) 'by millions':

stock 4.3
---------
13000000.000-13999999.000 3 (3%)
14000000.000-14999999.000 82 (82%)
15000000.000-15999999.000 15 (15%)


4.3 + patch
-----------
13000000.000-13999999.000 54 (54%)
14000000.000-14999999.000 35 (35%)
15000000.000-15999999.000 7 (7%)
16000000.000-16999999.000 1 (1%)
18000000.000-18999999.000 1 (1%)
22000000.000-22999999.000 2 (2%)


4.3 + modified patch
--------------------
13000000.000-13999999.000 3 (3%)
14000000.000-14999999.000 82 (82%)
15000000.000-15999999.000 14 (14%)
24000000.000-24999999.000 1 (1%)


IMHO, the 3rd option would be the way to go if this was considered an
acceptable option (ie, despite it returns spurious errors in 'rare
cases').
