    I think that what you want is a mode in which, once epoll_wait returns,
    the bits it returns get cleared from the event mask. Am I right?

    (To get this right, you'd need another flag that disables the automatic
    addition of POLLERR and POLLHUP.)

    If you do that and add an extra syscall that simultaneously does a bunch
    of epoll_ctls, a timerfd_settime, and an epoll_wait, I'll be extra happy.
