Subject: [PATCH] 9p: document short read behaviour with O_NONBLOCK
Date: Mon,  6 Apr 2020 19:19:32 +0200
Message-ID: <1586193572-1375-1-git-send-email-asmadeus@codewreck.org> (raw)

From: Dominique Martinet <dominique.martinet@cea.fr>

Regular files opened with O_NONBLOCK allow read to return after a single
round-trip with the server instead of trying to fill buffer.
Add a few lines in 9p documentation to describe that.

+BEHAVIOR
+========
+
+This section aims at describing 9p 'quirks' that can be different
+from a local filesystem behaviors.
+
+ - Setting O_NONBLOCK on a file will make client reads return as early
+   as the server returns some data instead of trying to fill the read
+   buffer with the requested amount of bytes or end of file is reached.
