          Use signalfd() in io-thread
          This patch reworks the IO thread to use signalfd() instead of sigtimedwait()
          This will eliminate the need to use SIGIO everywhere.

      Fix IO performance regression in sparc · 9e472e10
      aliguori authored
      Replace signalfd with signal handler/pipe.  There is no way to interrupt
      the CPU execution loop when a file descriptor becomes readable.  This
      results in a large performance regression in sparc emulation during
      This patch switches us to signal handler/pipe which was originally
      suggested by Ian Jackson.  The signal handler lets us interrupt the
      CPU emulation loop while the write to a pipe lets us avoid the
      select/signal race condition.
