Actually, the block with error can be safely removed from kern_poll.c before
we polish our patches. There is no problem running SMP + polling. Probably,
there were some problems in the past.
I think the block can be removed now and MFCed before 5.4-RELEASE. I'm quite
sure that our patches for Giant-less polling will not be MFCed soon.
Totus tuus, Glebius.
