/* This is here because it allows us to avoid a nasty race in signal handling. 
   We need to guarantee that when we get a signal we get out of a select immediately
   but doing that involves a race condition. We can avoid the race by getting the 
   signal handler to write to a pipe that is in the select/poll list 

   This means all Samba signal handlers should call sys_select_signal().

static pid_t initialised;
static int select_pipe[2];
static VOLATILE unsigned pipe_written, pipe_read;

 Call this from all Samba signal handlers if you want to avoid a 
 nasty signal race condition.

void sys_select_signal(char c)
      if (!initialised) return;

      if (pipe_written > pipe_read+256) return;

      if (write(select_pipe[1], &c, 1) == 1) pipe_written++;

 Like select() but avoids the signal race using a pipe
 it also guuarantees that fds on return only ever contains bits set
 for file descriptors that were readable.

             * 2.0.x kernel (and probably other UNIXes as well) where
             * the one byte read below can block even though the
             * select returned that there is data in the pipe and
             * the pipe_written variable was incremented. Thanks to

 Similar to sys_select() but catch EINTR and continue.
 This is what sys_select() used to do in Samba.
