FreeBSD implementation of poll(2) restricts timeout argument to be either zero, or positive, or equal to INFTIM (-1).

Unless otherwise overridden, socket timeout defaults to -1. This value is then converted to milliseconds (-1000) and used as argument to the poll syscall.

poll returns EINVAL (22), and the connection fails.

I have discovered this bug during the EINTR handling testing, and have naturally found a repro code in (see, attached). On GNU/Linux, the example runs as expected.

Oh, I didn't know bpo-31334. This issue is basically a duplicate of bpo-31334, but triggered differently.

Thanks Artem Khramov for the nice analysis of the root issue! And thanks for the fix! The bug is now fixed in 3.7, 3.8 and master branches.

Python 2.7 is not affected: I added sock_call_ex() helper function in Python 3 when I implemeneted the PEP 475 (Retry system calls failing with EINTR).
