Hmm... I'd prefer kaffe provide another implementation using select too. 
According to man-page, poll is conforming to XPG4-UNIX and I don't think 
it is linked to pthreads.

Socket should be blocking by default. It is necessary for the other 
syscalls. BTW, you may be interested by the jthread_set_blocking 
function (available for both jthreads and pthreads for external usage) 
which sets the blocking state of the fd (virtually for jthreads and 
natively for pthreads).
