       * intent appears to be, at least in part, a way of cutting
       * down the number of reads done on a capture, by blocking
       * until the buffer fills or a timer expires - and the Linux
       * libpcap doesn't actually support it, so we can't use it
       * to break out of the "pcap_dispatch()" every 1/4 of a second
       * or so.  Linux's libpcap is not the only libpcap that doesn't
       * support the read timeout.
       *
       * Furthermore, at least on Solaris, the bufmod STREAMS module's
       * read timeout won't go off if no data has arrived, i.e. it cannot
       * be used to guarantee that a read from a DLPI stream will return
       * within a specified amount of time regardless of whether any
       * data arrives or not.
       *
       * Thus, on all platforms other than BSD, we do a "select()" on the
       * file descriptor for the capture, with a timeout of CAP_READ_TIMEOUT
       * milliseconds, or CAP_READ_TIMEOUT*1000 microseconds.
       *
       * "select()", on BPF devices, doesn't work as you might expect;
       * at least on some versions of some flavors of BSD, the timer
       * doesn't start until a read is done, so it won't expire if
       * only a "select()" or "poll()" is posted.
       *
       * If we have "pcap_get_selectable_fd()", we use it to get the
       * descriptor on which to select; if that's -1, it means there
       * is no descriptor on which you can do a "select()" (perhaps
       * because you're capturing on a special device, and that device's
       * driver unfortunately doesn't support "select()", in which case
       * we don't do the select - which means Ethereal might block,
       * unable to accept user input, until a packet arrives.  If
       * that's unacceptable, plead with whoever supplies the software
       * for that device to add "select()" support.
