func ngx_proxy_protocol_read encounter an incomplete line

when I read the source code of nginx, i found this in file :http/ngx_http_request.c

if we set proxy_protol like this:
[listen 80 proxy_protocol;],

and then in func ngx_http_wait_request_handler, we will call

n = c->recv(c, b->last, size);
p = ngx_proxy_protocol_read(c, b->pos, b->last);

to see if this is an legal proxy_protocol message.

there is condition that if data in b is not an complete line of proxy_protocol message, ngx_proxy_protocol_read will set p to NULL instead of adding rev to event loop, and this will case a failure.

I'm wondering if is reasonable here to read proxy_protocol message only once for we may get an incomplete line and case an error(I have tried and it failed indeed)

Quoting PROXY protocol specification:

A receiver may reject an incomplete line which does not
contain the CRLF sequence in the first atomic read operation.

That's what nginx does, and this is in line with the specification.
