curl_multi_poll always returns immediately if the wakeup socket has been disconnected #6132

curl_multi_poll delegates to Curl_multi_wait, which checks multi->wakeup_pair[0] for POLLIN activity then attempts to read from it.

Unfortunately, waking an iPad breaks the wakeup socket pair, triggering a POLLIN event and resulting in SOCKERRNO being set to ENOTCONN in Curl_multi_wait's final #ifdef ENABLE_WAKEUP block.

This condition, and other possible error conditions on the wakeup socket, are not handled, so the condition remains on the FD and curl_multi_poll will never block again.

Even if the iOS wake scenario is to be considered an edge case, it seems to me we'd be best off looking for and handling any wakeup socket errors anyway.
