    SubjectRe: epoll (was Re: [PATCH] async poll for 2.5)
    From
    Date

    Whoops. I just realized a flaw in my own argument.

    With read, a short count might precede EOF. Indeed, in that case,
    calling epoll_getevents would cause the connection to get stuck.

    Never mind my earlier message then.
