Would using something other than POLLIN be an option (maybe POLLPRI)?
The convention is to use it to indicate readability on the descriptor,
and also possibly POLLHUP instead of POLLERR (the latter is less of a
problem, but FreeBSD also does the same, so it'd help with some
consistency for libraries wanting to use this, which aren't interested
in other sub states).
