Extended with an idea which I had today.
If the source declares it has cached frames, select enables a "cache
mode", frames are requested and cached in the select filter in case
they meet the select condition, and immediately returned in
This should/can be improved, indeed now it caches only one frames, in
case poll_frame() declares N frames, request() in cache-mode should be
called N times, each selected frame should be cached, poll will
finally return the number of selected cached frames.
Seems to work fine in my mind simulator, I'll try to extend the idea
to N frames (which should be rather easy).
BTW buffer should also be extended to support multiple frames caching.
