I was trying to better understand the use-case, since at least for the
test case you posted, 'EPOLLET', already does what you want.

Also, the 'EPOLLEXCLUSIVE' flag in your patch addresses multiple threads
blocking on *different* epoll fds. However, if multiple threads are
blocked on a single epoll fd, they will all be woken even if 'EPOLLEXCLUSIVE'
is set. Shouldn't 'EPOLLEXCLUSIVE' affect that case too?
