I think something like this is needed. I have two concerns though...
1) The patch below is causing the retry counter to be incremented.
It's not clear to me if this is the right thing to do or not.
(I honestly don't know what it should be. I'd have the same
concern if I saw that it wasn't being incremented.)
2) I think EAGAIN should be tested for in addition to EINTR. See
now that I look at this some more, it seems that we might
need another retry test somewhere else as well.
But, regardless, I think this fix ought to go in. We can add any
necessary adjustments later on.
