[ruby-dev:17855] non-blocking IO

  Nobu Nakada mentioned that buffered data are discarded when EWOULDBLOCK
  appears from an IO object which set the File::NONBLOCK flag.
  Suggested solutions are as follows:

  * Ignore EWOULDBLOCK error.

  * Raise Errno::EWOULDBLOCK with buffered data.

  * Return buffered data.

  It is not decided yet which solution we take.

  method call in arguments."
