Yes, you're right. I've rewritten the epoll module to have the
epoll_wait calls on a separate thread and to have the main event loop
waiting on a queue which receive the epoll events and the events from my

But as the initial request can be cancelled while still being processed
by my threads or still in the queue, some care is needed before
destroying the request structure.
