Subject: [PATCH 09/11] watch: use EOFpipe to reduce dwaitpid wakeups
Date: Mon, 31 Aug 2020 04:41:38 +0000
Message-ID: <20200831044140.17027-10-e@80x24.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200831044140.17027-1-e@80x24.org>

It's a bit inefficient to use a pipe, here.  However, using
dwaitpid() on a process that's not expected to exit soon is
also inefficient as it causes excessive wakeups as most of
our inbox-writing code expects synchronous waitpid().

This only affects -watch instances configured for NNTP and IMAP
clients.
