Re: (ITS#3567) slapd terminates unexpectedly

The select and poll manpages document EBADF as the errno value for 
invalid descriptors. This return of ENOSYS is something different. There 
will be no spin in slapd because that loop only happens for EBADF. As 
soon as this ENOSYS error occurs a single time, slapd will shut itself 
down because the process is definitely in an unstable state.
