It was tested on OS X 10.6. Should work on all BSDs; nothing OSX-
specific about the kqueue usage in the patch. As far as kqueue
support in OS X 10.5, from what I see, most everything is there.
Certainly all of the kqueue features in this patch are supported in OS
To expand on this: there are a lot of comments around the web that kqueue was
fairly broken at least up to 10.5. E.g. this:
Since we also use a pipe for the wake_sds in our event loop, if kqueue only
supports sockets, then it cannot be used reliably in slapd.
