Ah, good point. I created this patch a long time ago (cherry-picked it out
of an older branch I had done), so I don't remember how I concluded this
was a safe conversion, of if I missed that difference originally.

Yes, that is correct.

That's quite likely, I'd say any program passing {0,0} as a timeout without
ETNA_WAIT_NONBLOCK is already broken, but if we leave it like that,
it would be best to describe the reasoning in the changelog.

Should I change the changelog, or change the patch to restore the
current behavior instead?

I guess I could fold the change below into my patch to make it transparent
to the application again.
