On my RHEL6 box, <sys/epoll.h> is provided by glibc not the kernel:

$ rpm -qf /usr/include/sys/epoll.h

So I think it's probably safe to assume that the header is in sync
with what glibc can do.

As for kernel (much) older than glibc, I'd rather expect glibc to paper
over that, though I've not looked at the source code to be sure.
