Hello Michael,

Sorry it isn't true that the kernel 5.5 is also affected. A Power Mac G5 
user told me that but this isn't correct. I compiled and tested the 
stable kernel 5.5.1 and 5.5.2 today and both kernels don't have the 
issue with the avahi daemon.
Could you please also test the latest Git kernel?

strace /usr/sbin/avahi-daemon

...
poll([{fd=4, events=POLLIN}, {fd=16, events=POLLIN}, {fd=15, 
events=POLLIN}, {fd=14, events=POLLIN}, {fd=13, events=POLLIN}, {fd=12, 
events=POLLIN}, {fd=11, events=POLLIN}, {fd=10, events=POLLIN}, {fd=9, 
events=POLLIN}, {fd=8, events=POLLIN}, {fd=6, events=POLLIN}], 11, 65) = 
2 ([{fd=12, revents=POLLIN}, {fd=9, revents=POLLIN}])
ioctl(12, FIONREAD, 0xffba6f24)         = -1 ENOTTY (Inappropriate ioctl 
for device)
write(2, "ioctl(): Inappropriate ioctl for"..., 39ioctl(): Inappropriate 
ioctl for device) = 39
write(2, "\n", 1
)                       = 1
...

Thanks,
Christian
