Nevermind, I think I understand everything, now.  epoll_pwait
never set errno without our patch.

cmogstored does this in notify.c:

	/* wait_intr calls epoll_pwait: */
        mfd = mog_idleq_wait_intr(mog_notify_queue, timeout);
        if (mfd)
                notify_queue_step(mfd);
        else if (errno == EINTR) /* EINTR fails to be noticed */
                note_run();
