I personally think this is particularly cool, for having faced the
same needs in the past. I'm just wondering how long we'll avoid the
need for marking certain FDs as urgent (i.e. for inter-thread wakeup)

This last patch fixes a bug introduced by the 5th one. Why not squash it
instead of purposely introducing a bug then its fix ? Or maybe it was
just overlooked when you sent the PR ?
