nsock epoll() reactor?

Hi!

Nsock is based on good old select()  (nsock_core.cc, line 174)
Maybe it's time to move to some newer and faster technologies
like epoll()?

I think that stealing the code from libevent/epoll.c could
be good idea for start. (except for BSD + advertising license)

Also lighttpd has some interesting reactors
(lighttpd/src/fdevent_linux_sysepoll.c).

What do you guys think?

Btw. It seems that in some corner cases nmap's nsock core is faster
than libevent :)
