Remember, sys_read doesn't return on EINTR (it already catches and
takes care of that case) so it's not generic signals we're worried
about here, it's only EAGAIN, which should be a very rare case - in
fact it should only happen on non-blocking sockets with no data.

Do you have any test cases of this happening btw ?
