I have never actually seen ENOBUFS, or uevents being missed due to it,
so I think the chance of that is quite small. But I can't assert that
all messages will be received after an ENOBUFS. But as you said,
waiting longer in that case is a safer fallback than not waiting at
all. My hope is that that ENOBUFS situation clears itself up
automatically after some time, otherwise your whole system would be
screwed (as you could never receive any uevent).
