I cannot test, but I think using EINTR instead of EAGAIN is extremely
dangerous. The VLC networking code will normally automatically restart
-supposedly interrupted- system calls. In other words, you are
probably introducing an infinite loop on non-blocking sockets.

IIRC, EWOULDBLOCK is the Winsock name for EAGAIN.
