That's how I read it, too.
So basically, a program like this, perhaps.
Except that, here running 2.6.23.1, it works just fine (no removal bug).

#include <sys/epoll.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <errno.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/wait.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>

static int del_from_epoll_set (int efd, int fd, const char *msg)
{
struct epoll_event e;
memset(&e, 0, sizeof(e));
e.data.fd = fd;
if (epoll_ctl(efd, EPOLL_CTL_DEL, fd, &e) == -1) {
int err = errno;
fprintf(stderr, "epoll_ctl(DEL) failed (%s): %s\n", msg, strerror(err));
return -1;
}
return 0;
}
static int add_to_epoll_set (int efd, int fd, __uint32_t events, const char *msg)
{
struct epoll_event e;
memset(&e, 0, sizeof(e));
e.events = events;
e.data.fd = fd;
if (epoll_ctl(efd, EPOLL_CTL_ADD, fd, &e) == -1) {
int err = errno;
fprintf(stderr, "epoll_ctl(ADD) failed (%s): %s\n", msg, strerror(err));
return -1;
}
return 0;
}
int main (int argc, char **argv)
{
int efd, sd, fds[2];
pid_t cpid;
if (pipe(fds) == -1) {
perror("pipe()");
exit(1);
}
sd = socket(PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
if (sd == -1) {
perror("socket");
exit(1);
}
efd = epoll_create(5);
if (efd == -1) {
perror("epoll_create");
exit(1);
}
if (add_to_epoll_set(efd, fileno(stdin), EPOLLIN, "stdin"))
exit(1);
if (add_to_epoll_set(efd, fileno(stdout), EPOLLOUT, "stdout"))
exit(1);
if (add_to_epoll_set(efd, fds[0], EPOLLIN, "pipe_read"))
exit(1);
if (add_to_epoll_set(efd, fds[1], EPOLLOUT, "pipe_write"))
exit(1);
if (add_to_epoll_set(efd, sd, EPOLLIN|EPOLLOUT, "socket"))
exit(1);
// assume there is an open epoll set that listens for events on fd 5
cpid = fork();
if (cpid == 0) {
close(fileno(stdin));
close(fileno(stdout));
close(fds[0]);
close(fds[1]);
close(sd);
exit(0);
}
waitpid(cpid, NULL, 0);
// now test whether the fd's are still in the epoll set:
add_to_epoll_set(efd, sd, EPOLLIN|EPOLLOUT, "sd");
add_to_epoll_set(efd, fds[0], EPOLLIN, "fds[0]");
add_to_epoll_set(efd, fds[1], EPOLLOUT, "fds[1]");
add_to_epoll_set(efd, fileno(stdin), EPOLLIN, "fileno(stdin)");
add_to_epoll_set(efd, fileno(stdout), EPOLLOUT, "fileno(stdout)");
del_from_epoll_set(efd, sd, "sd");
del_from_epoll_set(efd, fds[0], "fds[0]");
del_from_epoll_set(efd, fds[1], "fds[1]");
del_from_epoll_set(efd, fileno(stdin), "fileno(stdin)");
del_from_epoll_set(efd, fileno(stdout), "fileno(stdout)");

printf("Done.\n");
exit(0);
}
