epoll is the way to go for high performance anyways [1]. It's well-tested
and integrated in the 2.6.x kernels. Patching the kernel and "make
oldconfig" should suffice even for a 2.4.x kernel.

- epoll especially handles low-traffic connections *by far* better than
poll, and low-traffic connections is what we have with Jabber.
