While epoll() would probably be the best solution, I understand not wanting to have a 
patched kernel. However, since you had to build a custom kernel for the "high-end 
hardware," what is the reluctance to add a well tested, performance enhancing patch to 
this kernel? I find it hard to believe (reading the HP specs) that a kernel took "weeks" 
to get running.

Perhaps you should draw on the depth of Linux knowledge that exists in the Jabber 
community rather than going it alone.
