[PATCH v2 1/2] fdmon-poll: reset npfd when upgrading to fdmon-epoll

From: Stefan Hajnoczi
Subject: [PATCH v2 1/2] fdmon-poll: reset npfd when upgrading to fdmon-epoll
Date: Tue, 15 Sep 2020 13:03:38 +0100

npfd keeps track of how many pollfds are currently being monitored. It
must be reset to 0 when fdmon_poll_wait() returns.

When npfd reaches a treshold we switch to fdmon-epoll because it scales

This patch resets npfd in the case where we switch to fdmon-epoll.
Forgetting to do so results in the following assertion failure:

  util/fdmon-poll.c:65: fdmon_poll_wait: Assertion `npfd == 0' failed.

and epoll(7) fd monitoring")
