Looking at it some more, we have:
struct file_operations {
....
unsigned int (*poll) (struct file *, struct poll_table_struct *);
So the comparison above does not seem to make sense:
it seems that the return value from poll can not be negative.

Will the callback be executed if someone did a write to eventfd
before we attached it? If no, maybe we should call it here
if ret != 0.
