Description Dmitry Titov 2009-01-16 15:16:01 PST
ResourceHandleManager for curl disables global timers during select() call to avoid being interrupted by a process signal. It appears that original effort to fix the interruption ended up using also a loop in case 'select' returns with EINTR. Loop is the sufficient way to deal with interruptions (for example, see here: http://www.wlug.org.nz/EINTR). See bug 16071 for more info.

I'm removing setDeferringTimers() because nothing else uses it and I'm in the process of making TimerBase thread-aware for workers.
