What about what's attached, instead ?

Because we can't rely on ret == 0 being meaningful. The manpage for
OpenSSL 1.1.1 states :
Old documentation indicated a difference between 0 and -1, and that -1 was 
retryable. You should instead call SSL_get_error() to find out if it's 
And the switch would lead to more goto, as we need to break from outside the
loop :)

I'm not sure I get that part. I don't mind one way or another, but I don't
understand how it would remove gotos.

Oops, that is true, those things are too complicated.

Subject: [PATCH] MINOR/BUG: ssl: Don't always treat SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL as

SSL_read() might return <= 0, and SSL_get_erro() return SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL,
without meaning the connection is gone. Before flagging the conection
as in error, check the errno value.

This should be backported to 1.8.
