I think the overall goal should be to get rid of
as it's in the core.
Any non-blocking call to select should be save to replace by epoll, as
the semantics are the same. As epoll is considerably more fine grained
than non-blocking select, the architecture must support a run loop which
effectively retrieves events faster than non-blocking select would do.
Otherwise the effort would be futile.
