Attached is an updated patch for kernel poll support.                 
                                                                      
The support now includes Solaris /dev/poll, linux eventpoll           
(/dev/epoll) and Free BSD kqueue. (Are there any other variants ?)    
                                                                      
If you want to disable the support set the environment variable       
ERL_NO_KERNEL_POLL before starting the emulator.                      
                                                                      
In addition to the patch there are new copies of config.h.in and      
configure to go in the otp_src_R8B-0/erts for those of you who lack   
autoheader and autoconf.                                              
                                                                      
Has anybody else tried out the previous patch ? Experiences ?
