Issue #6154 has been updated by headius (Charles Nutter).

File eagain_readwrite.diff added

Updated patch with the following changes:

* rb_eEWOULDBLOCKReadable and rb_eEWOULDBLOCKWritable added
* EWOULDBLOCK versions are set to EAGAIN versions if EAGAIN == EWOULDBLOCK
* renamed function rb_readwrite_sys_fail to match error.c names better
* reverted OSSL changes so nahi can do them right
* fixed the one test (test/socket/test_unix.rb) that expected an exact exception

Notes:

* assert_raise should probably use === instead of == to better match rescue logic
* more tests for this logic are needed(!!!)
* I have not tested RubySpec yet
* I can't test on HP/UX or other systems where EAGAIN != EWOULDBLOCK

Bug #6154: Eliminate extending WaitReadable/Writable at runtime
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/6154#change-25051

The nonblocking IO operations started extending WaitReadable or WaitWritable into the Errno::EAGAIN instance some time during the 1.9 series. This has a rather high cost, since a singleton class must be created and the global method cache must be flushed.

The attached patch instead creates two new classes of the following form, and raises them rather than raising a singleton EAGAIN:

class IO::EAGAINReadable < Errno::EAGAIN
  include WaitReadable
end

class IO::EAGAINWritable < Errno::EAGAIN
  include WaitWritable
end

The performance of repeatedly doing unsuccessful nonblocking reads improves by about 20%:

  1.000000   0.110000   1.110000 (  1.112519)

This benchmark does not show the hidden cost of constantly invalidating the global method cache.

I also modified a similar case in OpenSSL, where it previously created an SSLError and extended WaitReadable into it.
