The reason is simple.
This is in your program. glibc 2.0 does not define MSG_WAITALL, only
linux/socket.h or glibc 2.1 do, thus this definition is active
#ifndef MSG_WAITALL /* Most Systems don't tend to have this ... */
#define MSG_WAITALL 0x40 /* wait for full request or error */
but in linux/socket.h there is:
#define MSG_DONTWAIT 0x40 /* Nonblocking io */
#define MSG_WAITALL 0x100 /* Wait for a full request */
You're requesting non blocking IO, and EAGAIN is completely correct here.
