Ok. Documenting the half-close in KILL situations is surely a good
thing. However, i don't know where to look for the protocol
documentation. Can you help out?

OTOH we would need a "broken" implementation of the Berkeley sockets. A
reasonably conforming implementation would not take notice of the close
of the read direction on the peer. Unless it tries to actually write to
the socket. A poll on the write direction will only notice the
transition from a full write buffer to a non-full write buffer.

Anyway, if a poll misinterprets the half-close as connection failure of
some kind, it could try to work around it, or close by itself. In the
former case the full close follows soon. Finally the closed state is
reached in any case. The only problem might be wrong error messages.

This might be a misunderstanding. I do not want to add back the
definitions. But just an #include <debug_sync.h>. As I proposed in my patch.

If this is, what you thought, but still object, please explain, what the
problem is.

Ok, will do. But please note that in former time it was a rule not to
make patches that are neither related to a bug nor a worklog.

Possible. And it would be ok then. And there are those, who don't
understand, and still don't read. But I hope for those who read and
consider it.

BTW I'm on vacation this week. The fixed patch will come next week only.
