Hi friends,

Back in March 2007 (commit e4b754f64ed02ce85f6deb) we added code that would
allow libcurl to build with more rigid EINTR code for select/poll if you
defined CURL_ACKNOWLEDGE_EINTR at compile time.

Have anyone ever used it or see a point in keeping it?

The reason I ask is that we just now got a bug report (on Symbian - bug
3392945) due to the support code for EINTR that does a loop if 'errno' is 0 or
EINTR, which for some reason happens here.

I don't think we need to have code to loop in there at all. It would get some
unused code removed and the remaining code will be easier to read.
