eventfdLinux-compatible user event notification facility

#include <sys/eventfd.h>

eventfd is a Linux-borne facility for sending and receiving user events via a file descriptor. While the facility itself is somewhat dubious (it can be mimicked in an entirely portable way with a pipe), it is small and straightforward and this implementation is entirely compatible with its Linux antecedent; see eventfd(3C) for details.
