Pauli Nieminen told me about his performance problem in select() so I
wrote the test program but I don't know what exactly is the real life

Your 2 patches are good for me. In my opinion the improved performances
are good enough with your 2 patches, so no need to add more complexity
unless we discover new problems.

I am preparing patches to implement multicast features on Unix
datagram+seqpacket sockets and my patches could potentially make things
worse in unix_dgram_poll() because it would need to check the receiving
queues of all multicast members. So I want unix_dgram_poll() to be fast
in the first place before proposing other changes for multicast.
