attached patch replaces select() by pselect() in the gpsd main loop. This 
should make gpsd behaving nice when idle and avoids a race condition when 
multiple signals arrive shortly one after another.
if COMPAT_SELECT is defined, the code should behave exactly as it did before, 
for systems where pselect() isn't available. COMPAT_SELECT needs a 
configuration variable.
