With the possibility of using pipefd as a replacement on operating

This change allows enabling vhost-user on BSD platforms too and
makes libvhost_user (which still depends on eventfd) a linux-only

I would just check for !windows.

What about Darwin / Haiku / Illumnos?

It should work on every system providing pipe() or pipe2(), so I guess
Paolo's right, every platform except Windows. FWIW, I already tested
it with Darwin.

Wow, nice.

So maybe simply check for pipe/pipe2 rather than !windows?
