"""A socket-like object that can wake another thread from ``select()``.
The `~tornado.ioloop.IOLoop` will add the Waker's `fileno()` to
its ``select`` (or ``epoll`` or ``kqueue``) calls. When another
thread wants to wake up the loop, it calls `wake`. Once it has woken
up, it will call `consume` to do any necessary per-wake cleanup. When
the ``IOLoop`` is closed, it closes its waker too.
