I see that we'd most likely get stuck with the accept mutex (i.e. if
another process had it, we would not be poll()-ing already accepted fds
any more).

We could work around this by using apr_proc_mutex_trylock() if there are
any already accepted fds. If this fails, we just poll() already accepted
fds (i.e. someone is already poll()-ing to accept()). Otherwise, we
poll() the lot.
