It returns the number of bytes written, even if it is blocked and
can write part of the msg, see second point. But that makes sense.

          o  If O_NDELAY or O_NONBLOCK is set and the stream can-
            not accept data, write() returns -1 and sets errno to
          o  If O_NDELAY or O_NONBLOCK is set  and  part  of  the
            buffer  has  already  been  written  when a condition
            occurs in which the stream cannot  accept  additional
            data,  write()  terminates  and returns the number of
            bytes written.
