The select(2) system call is an ancient ABI limited to processes
containing at most FD_SETSIZE file descriptors overall (typically
1024).

This select call will fail if the target file descriptor is above
FD_SETSIZE in a session daemon containing many file descriptors.
This is unlikely to happen in normal use given than
sessiond_init_thread_quit_pipe() is called early by main(). Odd
scenarios could trigger this, for instance if the parent process leaves
a large number of file descriptors open, or if a library which
allocates file descriptors is LD_PRELOADed with the sessiond.

Never use select, use the lttng epoll/poll wrapper instead.

This patch depends on "Change lttng_poll_wait behaviour of compat-poll
to match compat-epoll" posted by Yannick Lamarre.
