Actually, I don't see any reasonable reason for using select/poll in rt 
applications. But, while trying to keep the API similar to V4L2, I would 
implement them by IOCTL and think it is OK, since it was already done for 
MMAP/MUNMAP. I don't think it worths writing the poll/select rt like 

What could be discussed here is if it will be required or not to have those 
calls needed when using streaming (most designs will use streaming). I don't 
think it should be required as it is on V4L2, but could be implemented 
optionally, as IOCTL calls. But I would need to investigate more this topic. 
I'll do it tomorrow... I'm the last man in the lab and they are calling me 
out for closing the lab...

I'll think about it and will answer tomorrow.
