[Libwebsockets] polling for file descriptor i/o

ldomterm waits for output from the child process by running select in
a separate thread:  See the code in:


This works, but it seems clumsy and wasteful, since lws has its own event
loop using select/poll.

Is there any mechanism to add a file descriptor to the lws event
loop and have a callback function fire when data arrives?
Perhaps this could use a new pseudo-protocol?

(Not a big deal, but maybe worth thinking about if changing
the VFS data structures.)
