That makes sense, and POSIX only specifies the behavior for -1 anyway.
The patch itself looks obviously correct. Thanks.

Since we're now translating the keepalive value, and since there's no
way to set it to "0" (nor would that really have any meaning), I guess
we could switch the internal "no keepalive" value to 0, and do:

  ret = poll(pfd, pollsize, keepalive ? 1000 * keepalive : -1);

which would let us avoid setting it to -1 in some other spots.  I dunno
if that actually makes a real difference to maintainability, though.
