CLOCK_THREAD_CPUTIME_ID clocks should be settable, but
currently they are not.

is sent to a thread group whose leader has terminated.

epoll.7
Michael Kerrisk
Fix error handling after accept() in example code
Simply continuing after an error is in most cases wrong,
and can lead to infinite loops (e.g., for EMFILE).
So handle an error by terminating.
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=504202
Add error handling for epoll_wait() call in example code
Improve example code
Fill in some gaps in example code (variable declarations,
adding listening socket to epoll set).
Give variables more meaningful names.
Other minor changes.
