FYI: libevent/libev benchmark updated for libevent-1.4.3

As version 1.4.3-stable of libevent uses a more efficient binary heap
over the red-black tree used before, the benchmark at:

  http://libev.schmorp.de/bench.html

was quite outdated. I therefore updated it by benchmarking libev-3.31 vs.
libevent-1.4.3.

The main difference is that the growth characteristics of libevent are now
similar to libev (and the factor of 2-3 remains).

(Note that the upcoming 3.33 version of libev uses a more cache-friendly
4-heap, but the benchmark still uses 3.31).

Enjoy,
