[erlang-questions] Support for polling HDD in linux 4.4

There is a news on LWN: http://lwn.net/Articles/663879/
and Ubuntu 16.04 with kernel that seems to support it.

We in erlyvideo have to maintain our own "thread pool" inside erlang in top
of erlang thread pool because it is very important to have different pools
for different devices.

All this is very complicated and could be more elegant if disk had async

Have anyone looked at this polling API?  Maybe it is time to implement it
in erlang?
