There are problems with eventport implementation, known for at
least several years now, and these can be easily reproduced by
running our test suite with 'use eventport' added to test
configurations. If I recall correctly, upstream keepalive is not
something important to trigger problems, any connection to an
upstream is basically enough.

Unfortunately, these problems are very low priority due to
minor popularity of Solaris. Consider using /dev/poll instead,
which is the default, well tested and has no known problems.

The patch in question looks more like a hack to mitigate a
particular issue the author was facing. It doesn't resolve the
underlying problems though, and likely there are other issues as
well. There are no plans to commit this patch.
