I don't understand how this can really work.  It means that we'll spin
with 100% CPU if we're waiting for the TX window to open up but
there's data ready to be received.  I doubt that's acceptable, is
there anything we can do?

Interesting.  <fcntl.h> is actually the standardized name, so it's
better to use that name anyway.

I'd consider adding to socket-util.h:

    #ifndef _WIN32
    #define closesocket close

so that we don't need a close_socket() in multiple files.

Would it make anything cleaner or easier to turn stream-ssl from a
direct user of sockets, into a user of a nested stream-tcp?
