    Linux always (for as long as select(2) existed?) supported select(2) on
    regular files. But why would you use it? select(2) on regular files is
    absolutely useless and uninteresting (imagine a person who always says
    "YES!" to any question you ask).

    The reason why they are uninteresting is from Single UNIX v2 spec that
    dictates:

    File descriptors associated with regular files always select true
    for ready to read, ready to write, and error conditions.
