Apologies. I'm still getting the hang of this.

I looked at 'top', 'trace', and 'kvm'. kvm doesn't really have this
issue because
the poll() has a 100ms timeout. Even though it's technically affected,
the timeout
will make it unnoticeable (just delaying the exit for 100ms). top is
in the same boat
(uses a timeout).

trace is the affected one because it has the following code:
int timeout = done ? 100 : -1;
if (!draining && evlist__poll(evlist, timeout) > 0) {

Different logic, but still a gap and an indefinite timeout.
