Subject[PATCH v2 1/4] epoll: make sure all elements in ready list are in FIFO order
Date
All coming events are stored in FIFO order and this is also should be
applicable to ->ovflist, which originally is stack, i.e. LIFO.

Thus to keep correct FIFO order ->ovflist should reversed by adding
elements to the head of the read list but not to the tail.
