Thanks for reviewing the patch!

Fixed. I tweaked the handling of the fifth argument 'timeout' of select(); when
a negative number is specified to a timeout of secure_poll(), NULL is set to
that 'timeout', which can block select() indefinitely.

Since SSL_pending() doesn't wait for data to arrive (i.e., doesn't use timeout),
I didn't change the code related to that function.
