SubjectRe: [PATCH] 'select' failure or signal should not update timeout

Yup, looks familiar.

The thing is, we cannot change existing select semantics, and the question
is whether what most soft-realtime wants is actually select, or whether
people really want a "waittimeofday()".

Like your example, the only uses I've had personally (DVD playback) have
really had an empty select, so it wasn't really select itself that was
horribly important.
