Erlang, C, IC and asyncronous servers/clients

Can't you define the function to be oneway and add a new function which
send the N packets back to the Erlang side? If not, you must search for
all complete packets and return them in a sequence. The last option is to
use the C-interface directly, i.e., not via IC.
