SubjectRe: Thread implementations...
Note that the poll_ctrl you introduce in
<ftp://ftp.atnf.csiro.au/pub/people/rgooch/linux/kernel-patches/v2.1/fastpoll-readme>
is almost all the work required for a completion queue. The additional
code required is to add "void *user_data; int completion_fd;" to the event
structure. If the low level code is smart enough to fill in your events
structure it's smart enough to plop a word into a pipe when necessary. So
are you sure it'd be too much bloat to do completion queues? :)
