When DefaultSelector is used on VMware ESXi, it fails with 

>>> import selectors
>>> selector = selectors.DefaultSelector()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/build/mts/release/bora-4887370/bora/build/esx/release/vmvisor/sys-boot/lib64/python3.5/", line 390, in __init__
OSError: [Errno 38] Function not implemented

After debugging, I found that it is using Selector which is not implemented for ESXi kernel. 

Change DefaultSelector mechanism to use 'select' implementation to choose default selector.
