Because writev_nonblocking() is really non-blocking and should return
EAGAIN/EWOULDBLOCK when things start to block.
But writev_nonblocking() is a local function, called (indirectly) by
the core output filter which deals with EAGAIN appropriately.

Why is it an issue for mod_proxy_http? EAGAIN remains local to the
core filtering, but however mod_proxy_http always passes a FLUSH
bucket at the end of the body, so everything should be fine at the
core filter level...
