[New-bugs-announce] [issue18660] os.read behavior on Linux

Louis RIVIERE report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Louis RIVIERE:

A call to os.read that used to work on older Linux kernel, doesn't anymore with newer Linux kernel.
As a workaroud we can use libc.read (ctypes) instead of os.read.
But I feel like os.read should work, as it used to.
