OK, but if someone passes a socket in blocking mode, it will be accepted.
I don't understand why, if you're worried about a blocking write, you
don't just check that the FD passed is in non-blocking mode. It's
conceptually cleaner, more direct and safer.

Also, I think there's another issue open on the tracker to check just
that, so I'd leave this check out here.
