I'm pretty tired of libevent right now, and I may opt for simply
ripping it out entirely to end the debugging pain.

I keep seeing stack corruption when I run live on c21 and I keep
seeing libevent implicated in it.

No I have taken libevent out everywhere but the CLI handling, and
we'll see if I can find the bug.

Killing libevent in varnish is now a matter of writing an acceptor
that uses poll(2) (for linux etc) and picking it out of the CLI
handling (where it's API is particularly bad to begin with).

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
