If a host was slow in reading data or did not read data at all, blocking write() calls not only blocked the program that called the write() call but also the entire guest. This was caused by the write() calls waiting until an acknowledgment that the data consumed was received from the host. With this update, write() calls no longer wait for such acknowledgment: control is immediately returned to the user space application. This ensures that even if the host is busy processing other data or is not consuming data at all, the guest is not blocked.
