:The manpage has been updated in -current:
:
:     If timeout is a non-nil pointer, it specifies the maximum interval to
:     wait for the selection to complete.  System activity can lengthen the in-
:     terval by an indeterminate amount.
:
:     If timeout is a nil pointer, the select blocks indefinitely.
:
:     To effect a poll, the timeout argument should be non-nil, pointing to a
:     zero-valued timeval structure.
:
:If no one objects I'll be committing it to -stable and praying to the
:gods that this thread dies.

    'nil' ?  'nil' is the designation for an ascii 0, not a pointer.  
    Please use 'null' or 'NULL' -- for example, look at the gettimeofday
    man page.  'nil' has nothing to do with pointers.
