Subject[PATCH 04/10] sysfs: sysfs poll keep the poll rule of regular file.
Date
From: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com>

Currently, following test programs don't finished.

% ruby -e '
Thread.new { sleep }
File.read("/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies")
'

strace expose the reason.

...
open("/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 3
ioctl(3, SNDCTL_TMR_TIMEBASE or TCGETS, 0xbf9fa6b8) = -1 ENOTTY (Inappropriate ioctl for device)
fstat64(3, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0444, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
_llseek(3, 0, [0], SEEK_CUR) = 0
select(4, [3], NULL, NULL, NULL) = 1 (in [3])
read(3, "1400000 1300000 1200000 1100000 1"..., 4096) = 62
select(4, [3], NULL, NULL, NULL

Because Ruby (the scripting language) VM assume select system-call
against regular file don't block. it because SUSv3 says "Regular files
shall always poll TRUE for reading and writing". see
http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/functions/poll.html it
seems valid assumption.

But sysfs_poll() don't keep this rule although sysfs file can read and
write always.

This patch restore proper poll behavior to sysfs.
/sys/block/md*/md/sync_action polling application and another sysfs
updating sensitive application still can use POLLERR and POLLPRI.
