I will try.

The terminal socket reads are run in gobble_input, which is called
from detect_input_pending (via a few intermediaries).  Emacs calls
detect_input_pending when the pselect call in
wait_reading_process_output finds that some input has arrived, and
wait_reading_process_output was called with READ_KBD or WAIT_FOR_CELL
arguments having values that tell it to do so.

Does this answer your question?
