Maybe their is a reason for this, but below are 2 functions.
The check to determine if all data is send/received is inconsistent.
See below:

124: if ((size_t) n < size) {
137: if ((size_t) n < size

40: if (n < (ssize_t) size) {

Variables n is ssize_t and size of size_t.

There is no real difference. In all cases both n and size are expected fit into both size_t and ssize_t, it is up to the author of the particular code to choose how to write the condition.
