It does - the question is whether that matters much.  FE/BE uses a
persistent wait set, but unfortunately much of other latch users
don't. And some of them can be somewhat frequent - so I guess that'd
possibly be measurable.  Ok, so I'm on board with epoll1.

If somebody were to change more frequent latch users to use persistent
wait sets, that'd be good too.
