When qemu vnc server is trying to send large update to clients,
there might be a situation when system responds with something
like EAGAIN, indicating that there's no system memory to send
that much data (depending on the network speed, client and server
and what is happening).  In this case, something like this happens
on qemu side (from strace):

sendmsg(16, {msg_name(0)=NULL,
        msg_iov(1)=[{"\244\"..., 729186}],
        msg_controllen=0, msg_flags=0}, 0) = 103950
sendmsg(16, {msg_name(0)=NULL,
        msg_iov(1)=[{"lz\346"..., 1559618}],
        msg_controllen=0, msg_flags=0}, 0) = -1 EAGAIN
sendmsg(-1, {msg_name(0)=NULL,
        msg_iov(1)=[{"lz\346"..., 1559618}],
        msg_controllen=0, msg_flags=0}, 0) = -1 EBADF

qemu closes the socket before the retry, and obviously it gets EBADF
when trying to send to -1.

This is because there WAS a special handling for EAGAIN, but now it doesn't
work anymore, after commit 04d2529da27db512dcbd5e99d0e26d333f16efcc, because
now in all error-like cases we initiate vnc disconnect.

This change were introduced in qemu 2.6, and caused numerous grief for many
people, resulting in their vnc clients reporting sporadic random disconnects
from vnc server.

Fix that by doing the disconnect only when necessary, i.e. omitting this
very case of EAGAIN.

Hopefully the existing condition (comparing with QIO_CHANNEL_ERR_BLOCK)
is sufficient, as the original code (before the above commit) were
checking for other errno values too.

Apparently there's another (semi?)bug exist somewhere here, since the
code tries to write to fd# -1, it probably should check if the connection
is open before. But this isn't important.
