The change *only* effects Windows.  Currently the code goes

    if sys.platform != 'win32':
        if hasattr(select, 'poll'):
            def _poll(fds, timeout):
            def _poll(fds, timeout):

So _poll() is only defined when sys.platform == 'win32'.

Furthermore, the _poll() function is never used anywhere: ConnectionBase.poll() uses Connection._poll(), which uses wait(), which uses select().
