Haiku's network documentation is nonexistent, but BeOS definitely did
not document poll() if it supported it at all.  Someone close to the
ground needs to check.

Win32 has no poll(), so it has to be emulated using select().
claims to be such an emulator; of course it inherits the problems of
select(), but at least presents the correct interface.  Note that Cygwin
does have poll().
