    ubik: don't rely on timeout value after select()
    The value of timeout after a select() call should be considered
    undefined; relying on its value is not portable.
    Since IOMGR_Select doesn't modify the timeout it is given, the
    intention of the code seems to be to wait for gradually increasing
    timeout values, starting at 50ms.  At least under Linux, the
    timeout gets set to 0 by select() if it waited for the full specified
    time, resulting in a much shorter maximum possible wait period.
    Initialize the timeout value for each loop according to the existing
    logic, to get consistent behaviour between the lwp and pthreaded code.
