I've tried and both Solaris and (*chuckle*) Linux seem to do same
If you think about it, it's more sensible to return POLLIN
rathen than POLLHUP there - it's perfectly valid when other end

encountered for files. Further read on such remotely closed socket
then returns with zero length of course, not an error.
