Please don't. tsocket_recv_send and tsocket_recv_recv is
indeed confusing, but all the other async functions use
_send and _recv. With the async functions you usually don't
use these low-level direct async counterparts of the sendto
and recvfrom syscalls much anyway, in Samba3 we mostly use
the writev and read_packet which are much more powerful.
