Use apr_poll and look for the out of band errors.

flood uses the following to check the socket:

apr_status_t check_socket(flood_socket_t *s, apr_pool_t *pool)
    apr_status_t e;
    apr_int32_t socketsRead;
    apr_pollfd_t pout;
    apr_int16_t event;

    pout.desc_type = APR_POLL_SOCKET;
    pout.desc.s = s->socket;
    pout.p = pool;

    e = apr_poll(&pout, 1, &socketsRead, 1000);
    if (socketsRead && pout.rtnevents) {
        return APR_EGENERAL;

    return APR_SUCCESS;

Note that flood checks for POLLIN because it is a client and shouldn't
see anything incoming that it hasn't requested, so that would be an
