"A descriptor shall be considered ready for reading when a call to an
input function with O_NONBLOCK clear would not block, whether or not the
function would transfer data successfully. (The function might return
data, an end-of-file indication, or an error other than one indicating
that it is blocked, and in each of these cases the descriptor shall be
considered ready for reading.)"
