Unfortunately the header file on the system in question defines
both EPOLL_CLOEXEC and EPOLL_NONBLOCK even though it doesn't
prototype epoll_create1(). So this idea won't work.
The bug we are effectively trying to work around is the one fixed
by this libc patch:

The only problem with the header is that it doesn't declare the
function, so the only way to detect it is to do something that
will fail if the function isn't declared, like compiling -Werror.
