Issue #8788 has been reported by normalperson (Eric Wong).

----------------------------------------
Feature #8788: use eventfd on newer Linux instead of pipe for timer thread
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8788

Author: normalperson (Eric Wong)
Status: Open
Priority: Low
Assignee: 
Category: core
Target version: current: 2.1.0


eventfd is a cheaper alternative to pipe for self-notification (signals) on Linux

I will submit patches in the next few days/weeks unless there are objections
(or somebody else wants to do it sooner).  I'd also like to cleanup some of the existing #ifdefs in that area while I'm at it.
