Sorry, but this is pretty much a no-go for OpenBSD. We have a
userland threads implementation that puts file descriptors in
non-blocking mode such that it can switch to another thread if I/O to
that filedescriptor would block. This has side effects if these file
descriptors are shared with child processes :(.
