I didn't look at it before, but have now.

One possible answer might be to put the socket into non-blocking mode
while it is accept()ing.  accept() then returns EAGAIN (or EWOULDBLOCK)
when there are no connections ready to be accepted, and EBADF when the
socket closes.  I've attached a new version of your C test (I think you
should have been waiting for cond2 in the poll test too, but it didn't
seem to make any difference.)

We would have to make sure to track the requested blocking state.
