eventfd is a Linux syscall that returns a file descriptor for event/notify systems. I propse to add a simple eventfd(initval, flags) function that is a wrapper around glibc's eventfd abstraction layer. High level notify and semaphores can then be implemented in pure Python.

See for more details

See for a use case.
