New submission from Christian Heimes <lists at cheimes.de>:

eventfd is a Linux syscall that returns a file descriptor for event/notify systems. I propse to add a simple eventfd(initval, flags) function that is a wrapper around glibc's eventfd abstraction layer. High level notify and semaphores can then be implemented in pure Python.

See https://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man2/eventfd.2.html for more details

See https://bugs.python.org/issue40485 for a use case.
