Actually... not sure if it matters, even.  EPOLLEXCLUSIVE still
seems worse off than a blocking accept4() thread.  The process
which gets woken from epoll_wait can still be stuck dealing with
application processing or other I/O (the kernel has no way of
knowing that).

Blocking on accept4() is fairer in that regard since it
round-robins the processes.

On a related note, having a multi_accept parameter (like nginx)
should be beneficial to single-process deployments.
