The log events get streamed over the socket, so you'll have to consume
them. Alternatively you may omit control-log registration, but that
requires the use of lower level functions.

If complete asynchronous initiation is what you want, have a look at the
patch at [1] that is queued for mainline. It accepts negative values for
the timeout, and returns immediately after triggering initiation.

It is a documentation issue, will fix.
