Ah, yes, that explains it.

I assume you mean joining the bio_filter_in/out_ctx_t's as we already have a 
unified ssl_filter_ctx_t (filter_ctx in both bio_filter_in and 
bio_filter_out).  ISTR, we tried this (unified bio ctx_t) once before and it 
got really complicated to understand what was what.  My thought is to keep 
them split and add the reciprocal pointers and ensure that the output BIO 
filter always (re)sets the input BIO to blocking.

That should make it obvious what we're trying to do.  -- justin
