The last bit of the description of O_NONBLOCK (after the description of the
behaviour with FIFOs and block/char specials) is:

"Otherwise, the behavior of O_NONBLOCK is unspecified."

Can we rely on all platforms to do something reasonable with O_NONBLOCK on
normal files?  On the other hand, stat'ing it to find out if it's a FIFO or
device first is racy...
