Yeah, looks like your custom splice
impliticly sets a SO_RCVTIMEO on
the socket.

Looking at the man page for recv()
we have:

              The socket is marked nonblocking and the receive operation would block, or a receive timeout had been set  and  the
              timeout  expired before data was received.  POSIX.1-2001 allows either error to be returned for this case, and does
              not require these constants to have the same value, so a portable application should check for both possibilities.

so it is possible that even when
the socket it set blocking that
a recv() or splice() call can

I'll look at the code changes
needed for this.
