Exactly.  The old API had the right design: an abstract poll object with
accessor functions, so that the poll wrapper can run in O(1) time.  The
new implementation results in an O(n) time wrapper (due to the need to
copy n pollfd objects on every poll call), not to mention the memory leak.

Please go ahead and revert the new implementation.  If we need to tune the
old implementation, let's do that.
