Debian packages are available on my repository [1]. The Hurd packages
provide the new io_select_timeout call, while glibc includes a modified
_hurd_select implementation. They are currently being tested on the
darnassus.sceen.net public hurdbox. I haven't adjusted the dependencies,
so you should install the Hurd packages first and reboot, in order to
avoid any trouble.

Feedbacks are, as usual, very welcome.
