While checking the poll() handlers in various drivers across the system for proper POLLET behavior per OS-5882, it became clear that a subset of drivers can emit POLLNVAL via revents. While this is valid behavior for poll(2) and friends, it is not a recognized event value in the epoll API. There should be translation logic added to the devpoll output code.
