nucleus: fix poll EOF issue with xnpipe/rt_pipe

So far, the EOF event is not handled in the Linux poll function of the
xnpipe/rt_pipe service when the pipe is closed (via rt_pipde_delete).
This patch fixes the issue by setting POLLUP in the Linux poll function
when the pipe is broken. The subsequent reads will then fail with errno
