Hey Jason,

I just wanted to address the "main use-case" (as implemented in a bunch of
network server): one listen socket (say 80) is created and a epoll fd is
created. The listen socket is added to the set and n threads are created
afterwards. So now you have the situation that one listening socket is added
to the set and all threads are awoken if a new client connects. This patch
reduce the useless-all-thread-awoken-overhead by awake only one thread.
