First of all, thanks for the patch. I'm sure we need to implement 
semantics like this.

The patch touches a few places in the xorp-olsr branch where I've 
converted MFEA related code to use libcomm functions which had to be 
implemented for OLSR support.

BTW, quick question: why do you need to use a XorpFd* instead of a 

XorpFd's constructor guarantees that it is initialized to an invalid 
value regardless of the platform it's on, which covers the case where 
lazy allocation is needed (a quick read suggests you are lazy allocating 
the fd).

I'm sure Pavlin will be in touch soon with more feedback.
