Nathaniel, thanks a lot for the comprehensive analysis.

It's now obvious that this weird Linux-specific socket.type quirk is of our own making and specific only to Python.

I've updated the PR:

1. *type* argument of 'socket.socket()' is passed as is to OS functions.  It is now cleared of SOCK_NONBLOCK and SOCK_CLOEXEC on Linux.

2. socket.setblocking() no longer applies SOCK_NONBLOCK to socket.type.

That's it.  I'm now certain that this is the correct way of handling this situation.  socket.type must be fixed.

Please review the updated PR.
