Subject[PATCH] poll: Avoid extra wakeups in select/poll
[PATCH] poll: Avoid extra wakeups in select/poll

After introduction of keyed wakeups Davide Libenzi did on epoll, we
are able to avoid spurious wakeups in poll()/select() code too.

For example, typical use of poll()/select() is to wait for incoming
network frames on many sockets. But TX completion for UDP/TCP
frames call sock_wfree() which in turn schedules thread.

When scheduled, thread does a full scan of all polled fds and
can sleep again, because nothing is really available. If number
of fds is large, this cause significant load.

This patch makes select()/poll() aware of keyed wakeups and
useless wakeups are avoided. This reduces number of context
switches by about 50% on some setups, and work performed
by sofirq handlers.
