Always from eio_poll, i.e. always synchronous to whatever thread calls

It should also be permissible to call eio_poll concurrently from multiple
threads, as eio_poll properly locks the result queue for each request,
although nobody has tested that so far :)

(it is even permissible to recurse into eio_poll from a callback, this ahs
been tested).
