I guess the patch could do

    if any(x[1] & POLLNVAL for x in ret):
        raise ValueError('invalid file descriptor')

Also, I don't think there is any need to unregister the fds since you are just removing entries from an internal dict which will be garbage collected.

I don't know if patching 2.7, 3.2, 3.3 to use/fallback on poll() would be allowed as a bug fix.  When, if ever, will the next 2.7 release happen?
