Yes that commit does change the behaviour if you don't terminate
your AEAD request by clearing the MSG_MORE flag.  AEAD does not
support chaining so each request must be sent in full before it
can be processed through recvmsg(2).  Setting the MSG_MORE flag
indicates that your request has not been sent in full.
