Sidebar on poll/select (was Clients can freeze other clients)

Samba uses a very short list of file descriptors in select(), so the
choice of poll()/select() is not performance critical in Samba. Unless
someone has some facts/numbers showing that it actually makes a
difference in some way for Samba then I think we'll leave it alone.
