I'll come back to the details later (rather busy lately).

The code actually is:

do { 
   } while(r==-1 && errno==EINTR);

The return code for a unsatisfied read request in non-blocking
mode is EAGAIN.

But normaly the plugin uses mmap() to read the file (if you
haven't disabled this by intent), so that the code part you
mentioned isn't used at all.
