Some time ago there was a patch[1] that implements epoll support for linux.  It
seems it is applied now, but by some reason epoll support is replaced with
kpoll support (except one comment in erts/emulator/sys/unix/sys.h).  Now
linux-2.6 kernels have epoll by default and no kpoll.  Is there any plans to
return epoll support in erlang?
