Call for Testing: openssl(1)

Contributed by tbert on from the are-you-being-served dept.

Theo de Raadt has just committed a conversion of the openssl(1) client and server implementations from select(2) to poll(2):

Module name:	src
Changes by:	2014/12/02 12:44:49

Modified files:
	usr.bin/openssl: s_client.c s_server.c 

Log message:
convert select() to poll().  This is one of the most complicated
conversions in the tree, because the original code is very rotten and
fragile.  Please test and report any failures.
Assistance from millert, bcook, and jsing.

Users of this functionality are encouraged to put these changes through the wringer to shake out any bugs that may have been introduced or uncovered.
