Having done this before it's fairly straightforward to achieve, even if
you can't assume libc support for epoll().  At startup, try to use
epoll_create() as you need to anyway.  If that fails then degrade to
using poll() or whatever.

This is needed anyway: the relevant structures, syscalls and libc entry
points are only availiable on Linux and the syscalls can't be worked
