"""Workaround for problems with tornado, pycurl, and epoll interaction."""

# NOTE(apenwarr): libcurl 7.22 (at least) has a bug when used with epoll.
# If an HTTP request causes a redirect, and we get the redirect response
# very quickly (as we do in the tests in this file), libcurl will disconnect
# the socket and then reconnect on the same fd, without telling tornado to
# unregister and re-register its events. With epoll, this is fatal and the
# tests will fail. The proper fix for this is to upgrade to libcurl 7.31
# or later, but since not everyone will do that, let's disable epoll if we
# find you have an old version of libcurl and are running this test.
# This code has to come before any tornado imports, because tornado checks
# for the existence of epoll when it is first imported
