    Hopefully, yes.

    No, but there are some problems to be aware of: in particular, glibc
    does not cope entirely gracefully with large numbers of fds.
    Specifically, rpc breaks if you increase the open-files rlimits, and you
    will need to define your own, larger fd_set structures if you want to
    use select on fds above 1024.

    Other than that, it should work fine (and I have had test code running
    both poll and select on 10000 fds with no problems). Obviously it has
    had less testing than the existing code, but the large fdset bits have
    been in all of the recent *ac kernels without causing any known
    problems.
