Well, not quite *no* userspace changes, but not many. You have to
use si_band rather than si_code (and with Luban's version, you also
need to set a new flag).
It has some locking problems that only show up under very heavy use,
so caveat emptor. I put together a stress test
(http://www.kegel.com/dkftpbench/ with the -sf option);
run that against betaftpd, and around 4500 ftp sessions, you might
see it crash because a signal comes in while the file table is expanding...
(By the way, I finally updated http://www.kegel.com/c10k.html to
distinguish properly between edge-triggered readiness notification
methods and level-triggered ones. Hope that helps dispel some
confusion in the future.)
