:Please review the patch attached to
:http://bugs.dragonflybsd.org/issue895. If there are no objections I
:will commit it on Thursday, Jan 10.
:It seems all BSDs leave select()'s timeout argument unchanged on
:return (contrary to linux), so I don't intend anymore to "fix" dfly
:with that respect.
It looks reasonable after a quick perusal.
select()'s timeout argument is always left unchanged. Linux originally
adjusted it on return but I was under the impression that they
reverted back to the BSD method of not touching it. The changing of
the timeout argument was a major mistake that linux made in their
implementation a long, long time ago.
