how is epoll implemented in freebsd? I checked out the source, poked
around a bit and even managed to find the commit (r255672) but that got
reverted soon after (r255675). Best I can tell so far from the
syscalls.master file is that the syscalls are just occupying space, they
don't seem to do much (all the calls are simply epoll_foo(void) now).

There are some references to EPOLL_CLOEXEC in the tree but svn is far to
painful for me to figure out how everything fits together here, sorry.
