Currently, we use int as return value for various socket functions returning
copy- or datagram length.
However, the opengroup spec says we should return ssize_t instead here. This
might be to compensate for platforms where 'int' has 16 bits (and thus we
could return 32KByte only, and our max.-sized pbufs would fail).
