       sd_event_get_fd - Obtain a file descriptor to poll for event loop events


       #include <systemd/sd-event.h>

       int sd_event_get_fd(sd_event *event);


       sd_event_get_fd() returns the file descriptor that an event loop object returned by the
       sd_event_new(3) function uses to wait for events. This file descriptor may itself be
       polled for POLLIN/EPOLLIN events. This makes it possible to embed an sd-event(3) event
       loop into another, possibly foreign, event loop.

       The returned file descriptor refers to an epoll(7) object. It is recommended not to alter
       it by invoking epoll_ctl(2) on it, in order to avoid interference with the event loop's
       inner logic and assumptions.


       On success, sd_event_get_fd() returns a non-negative file descriptor. On failure, it
       returns a negative errno-style error code.

       Returned errors may indicate the following problems:

           event is not a valid pointer to an sd_event structure.

           The event loop has been created in a different process.
