SRB channel is broken in PulseAudio

You need to

(spawned off bug 5743)
We currently cannot support PulseAudio's new SRB channel because our glibc is
too old. We need the eventfd() call which was added in 2.8.
Right now it seems to work anyway. But everyone else is switching over to SRB
so the old mechanism might rot eventually and we could suffer from bugs that no
one else sees.
We might also get away with some dlopen() magic if we feel we really need this
before we can upgrade glibc.
We don't have an actual problem, so let's close this bug. It will resolve
itself when we upgrade glibc.
