    vol: Add timeouts to SYNC server select() calls
    Normally *SYNC server processes wait indefinitely for activity to
    occur on one of the SYNC sockets. On some Linux kernels, there exists
    a race condition where data can come in on a socket, but the select()
    call continues to wait. To ensure that we do not hang forever in such
    a scenario, add a timeout to the select() call, which will ensure we
    notice the new data within 10 seconds. Raise the timeout on non-Linux
    to reduce impact elsewhere.
    The Linux kernel bug is tracked in
    <>, though that bug
    report may not represent all affected kernels.
