Sam's select/poll infrastructure removal project is now in HEAD. This
project reimplements the kernel's select() and poll() system calls using
per-thread kqueues and removes the original select/poll infrastructure.
We expect there to be some bugs so anyone running HEAD please report
issues where (primarily) programs wind up blocking on something and
not waking up when they should, or if the system crashes or deadlocks
when it did not before.
I've already mentioned it on IRC, so just for the record. Since the
select/poll work, svn doesn't work properly. For example:
svn co http://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/llvm/trunk llvm
times out while on a system from the 19th it succeeds.
Another thing I noticed is that dhclient takes longer now (more tries)
to get an IP (though it eventually succeeds).
