Patch to fix atomicio and atomiciov non-polling spin

atomicio contains the following in the read/write loop:

                case -1:
                        if (errno == EINTR || errno == EWOULDBLOCK)
                        if (errno == EINTR)
                        if (errno == EAGAIN) {
                                (void)poll(&pfd, 1, -1);
                        return 0;

On systems where errno is set to EWOULDBLOCK we spin on the read or
write without polling.  On many other systems (Linux, Solaris, IRIX,
...) EWOULDBLOCK is defined as EAGAIN, and when errno is set to EAGAIN
we spin on the read or write without polling.

Please see patch.
