Or to rephrase my question: When I do something blocking, will "the OS"
continue fetching data, for example into some buffer, which is then
emptied when calling `curl_multi_socket_action()`?

As you see, I have no clue how this all works. If there is something to
read which will get me started, then I'd appreciate a pointer! In the
end, I just want to understand what to watch out for, performance wise.
