I'm in progress to fix the whole problem correctly, by fixing the socket
abstraction. The function socket_get_fd() is stupid and breaks the

The caller should give a tevent_context to the socket layer and
callbacks for read and write, it's up to the socket layer how to trigger
them. The packet.c code will also be obsoleted by a generic
tsocket_send[to]_queue_send/recv() and tsocket_recv_pkt_send/recv() code.

The tsocket abstraction could also be used to wrap the pipe between
samba3's winbind parent and child.
