just as a data point i setup a couple new 9.9.3-P1 boxes last night that
get around 30,000 qps combined and with rolling logs the last million
lines or so don't show any trace of "POLL" on centos 6.4 with bind
compiled from latest src.  the only "option" i have is enable-ssl.

not much help i know, but it does seem solaris/compile specific.  maybe
something like this can help:
