proc: mounts_poll() make consistent to mdstat_poll
KOSAKI Motohiro [Thu, 9 Apr 2009 04:57:59 +0000 (13:57 +0900)]
In recently sysfs_poll discussion, Neil Brown pointed out /proc/mounts
also should be fixed.

SUSv3 says "Regular files shall always poll TRUE for reading and
writing".  see
http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/functions/poll.html

Then, mounts_poll()'s default should be "POLLIN | POLLRDNORM".  it mean
always readable.

In addition, event trigger should use "POLLERR | POLLPRI" instead
POLLERR.  it makes consistent to mdstat_poll() and sysfs_poll(). and,
select(2) can handle POLLPRI easily.
