What happens if two tasks try to do a read op (or two tasks try to do a 
write op) on the same file descriptor?  It looks like the second one to 
do scheduling.block_r(fd) will cause the first task to be forgotten, 
causing the first task to block forever.

Shouldn't there be a list of pending readers and a list of pending 
writers for each fd?
