: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.
