Subject: [PATCH 15/18] flag parameters: NONBLOCK in eventfd

This patch adds support for the EFD_NONBLOCK flag to eventfd2.  The
additional changes needed are minimal thanks to the previous preparation.

The following test must be adjusted for architectures other than x86 and
x86-64 and in case the syscall numbers changed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/syscall.h>

#ifndef __NR_eventfd2
# ifdef __x86_64__
#  define __NR_eventfd2 290
# elif defined __i386__
#  define __NR_eventfd2 328
# else
#  error "need __NR_eventfd2"
# endif
#endif

#define EFD_NONBLOCK (1 << 1)

int
main (void)
{
  int fd = syscall (__NR_eventfd2, 1, 0);
  if (fd == -1)
    {
      puts ("eventfd2(0) failed");
      return 1;
    }
  int fl = fcntl (fd, F_GETFL);
  if (fl == -1)
    {
      puts ("fcntl failed");
      return 1;
    }
  if (fl & O_NONBLOCK)
    {
      puts ("eventfd2(0) sets non-blocking mode");
      return 1;
    }
  close (fd);

  fd = syscall (__NR_eventfd2, 1, EFD_NONBLOCK);
  if (fd == -1)
    {
      puts ("eventfd2(EFD_NONBLOCK) failed");
      return 1;
    }
  fl = fcntl (fd, F_GETFL);
  if (fl == -1)
    {
      puts ("fcntl failed");
      return 1;
    }
  if ((fl & O_NONBLOCK) == 0)
    {
      puts ("eventfd2(EFD_NONBLOCK) does not set non-blocking mode");
      return 1;
    }
  close (fd);

  puts ("OK");

  return 0;
}
