Guess no.

But I'll rework the first patch a bit (the sequence of revents <--> errno 
check is already bogus) and commit them. And I really suggest you to use an 
application like dvbstream which does its own buffering (at least I hope 
so ;) - because it has never happened to me yet that the ringbuffer 
overflowed (and it shouldn't with sane applications).
