According to the man page:

If timeout is not a null pointer, it specifies the maximum interval to
wait for the selection to complete. System activity can lengthen the
interval by an indeterminate amount.

If timeout is a null pointer, the select blocks indefinitely.

To effect a poll, the timeout argument should not be a null pointer, but
it should point to a zero-valued timeval structure.
