Summary: Fix selectmodule.c compilation on GNU/Hurd

Initial Comment:
This patch (by Wouter van Heyst) fixes compilation of python2.5 on the Hurd (and other systems?)

It fixes the following build error:

gcc -fPIC -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -I. -I/build/buildd/python2.5-2.5/./Include -I../Include -I. -I/build/buildd/python2.5-2.5/Include -I/build/buildd/python2.5-2.5/build-static -c /build/buildd/python2.5-2.5/Modules/selectmodule.c -o build/temp.gnu-0.3-i686-AT386-2.5/build/buildd/python2.5-2.5/Modules/selectmodule.o

/build/buildd/python2.5-2.5/Modules/selectmodule.c:709: error: for each function it appears in.)
/build/buildd/python2.5-2.5/Modules/selectmodule.c:709: error: request for member 'ob_type' in something not a structure or union
/build/buildd/python2.5-2.5/Modules/selectmodule.c:709: warning: statement with no effect

We hope this does not break other platforms, does this look OK?

Closing for now. If it's really Python's fault, you can reopen this.

Hrm, upon further analysis, it looks likely that poll() really is not
conforming to POSIX on GNU/Hurd and should get fixed, rather than
HAVE_BROKEN_POLL code be changed.

I have submitted this upstream to the Hurd developers, the patch should
not be applied in the meantime (and might be obsolete).

Yes, python2.5 builds fine otherwise (at least the Debian package, I am
not sure whether we applied local changes earlier).  This HAVE_BROKEN_POLL
issue was the only regression from python2.4 as far as the Debian GNU/Hurd
port was concerned.

Is this only change required for Hurd?  I'm not sure, but HAVE_BROKEN_POLL
might have a specific meaning on OS X.  So there might be a problem with
this patch.  I'd need to look at the whole file to verify.  I'll try to
remember to do that later.
