Yes, daemons/clvmd/clvmd.c:main_loop's select() on /dev/null appears to
be the problem.  If I set the associated listen_fd to be nonblocking the
CPU load goes from 100%+ to ~80%.  But with the committed "fix" cpu load
(when clvmd is idle) is now ~1% (on my f12 kvm guest).

I haven't looked for an alternative.  Not really seeing the current fix
as overly complicated.  Its pretty standard socket code, which Milan
started, that I then refined to be modeled after
daemons/clvmd/clvmd.c:open_local_sock().  For that matter, we could have
a single function that is used for both (reducing the perceived
complexity of the clvmd-singlenode.c:init_comms).
