Once again we are struggling with the ill-defined filtering API :(

You're proposing here to make the _GETLINE call return a partial read in 
a case where no LF is found.  I think most existing callers would 
probably cope fine with that, but the wording in util_filter.h is 

     *  (If a potential line is too long or no CRLF is found, the               
     *   filter may return partial data).                                       

i.e. it does not make mention of non-blocking mode.

So I think it would be best to revert the second half of the patch and 
leave the first half as-is, i.e. patch as below - if this makes sense to 
you also?  

I've been trying to make a test case which tickles this issue but have 
so far not managed to get a non-blocking GETLINE call with the filter in 
the right state.
