I'm slightly worried about breaking 3rd-party code that might be using recv() and somehow expecting the current behavior. However, it's equally arguable that such code would have Windows-specific problems that would be fixed by the patch. Now that we've seen a successful round of buildfarm results, I'd be okay with back-patching 90e61df8 personally.
