test_socket on Android fails with:
FAIL: test_set_inheritable (test.test_socket.InheritanceTest)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/sdcard/org.bitbucket.pyona/lib/python3.7/test/", line 4936, in test_set_inheritable
    self.assertEqual(sock.get_inheritable(), True)
AssertionError: False != True

FAIL: test_set_inheritable_cloexec (test.test_socket.InheritanceTest)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/sdcard/org.bitbucket.pyona/lib/python3.7/test/", line 4965, in test_set_inheritable_cloexec
AssertionError: 1 != 0

Setting a file descriptor with os.set_inheritable() also fails.
Setting directly the file descriptor with fcntl.fcntl() succeeds.

It seems the code path run by Android is not tested by any of the buildbots.
Patch attached.
