We're doing some testing with openib btl on a system with Solaris.
It looks like Solaris can return POLLIN|POLLRDNORM in revents from a
poll call. I looked at the manpages for Linux and it reads like
Linux could possibly do this too. However the code in
btl_openib_async_thread that checks for valid revents is only
checking for POLLIN and in the case it gets POLLIN|POLLRDNORM the
btl ends up throwing an error. I think erroring out on the
POLLIN|POLLRDNORM case is a bug.
Does anyone feel otherwise and can explain to me why we should not
consider POLLIN|POLLRDNORM as a valid condition? I have the same
question pertaining to POLLRDBAND too but I don't believe we've seen
