The performance issue was that the asyncio core loop was running in a loop
but did nothing because of time rounding. When the next event was in a few
nanoseconds, the e event burnt the CPU during <clock resolution> seconds.
It can be 15 ms on Windows or 1 ms when using poll() for example. It's not
just clock resolution, also the resolution of the selector.

Hopefully, select and selectors now round towards +inf (rather than
rounding down, towards zero or -inf) and so the selector resolution is no
more an issue if I recall correctly.
