WL#3297: Make SocketClient have internal buffer for gets()
Affects: Server-7.1 — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Very High
See http://lists.mysql.com/commits/6549 This patch uses the Operating System's buffer and a non-blocking socket to implement read a line at a time for a socket. Since this is only used through SocketClient, we could have our own buffer inside SocketClient and use it. This would reduce even further the number of system calls made my ndb_mgmd and also keep it compatibily with systems that don't support (or have buggy) non blocking sockets. Good beginner task.
