[Jack-Devel] Non-blocking I/O in process callback

I'm wondering whether it's safe to do non-blocking reads or writes from
inside the process callback.
From what I've seen, non-blocking I/O doesn't cause the process to go
into blocked state, and the realtime scheduler should not switch to
another process. But the documentation doesn't seem to allow them:
> [...] it cannot call functions that might block for a long time. This
> includes all I/O functions (disk, TTY, network), [...]
So, is it safe to use non-blocking I/O in the process callback?
