I did not miss the point of the exercise. If a handled signal is
invoked, apr_poll() will (on Unix) terminate with EINTR. (I don't even
see a separate Windows implementation of apr_poll, so I'm still confused
as to what happens there.) Your retry loop will of course catch the
EINTR and retry, but that's not really necessary.

Here's a test program if you want to verify. Notice that even though
SIGINT is handled, you can still interrupt the program with ^C.

#include <apr_file_io.h>
#include <apr_poll.h>
#include <apr_signal.h>

static apr_status_t wait_for_input(apr_file_t *f, apr_pool_t *pool)
  apr_pollfd_t pollset;
  int srv, n;

  pollset.desc_type = APR_POLL_FILE;
  pollset.desc.f = f;
  pollset.p = pool;
  pollset.reqevents = APR_POLLIN;
  srv = apr_poll(&pollset, 1, &n, -1);

  if (n == 1 && pollset.rtnevents & APR_POLLIN)
    return APR_SUCCESS;

  return srv;

static void handler(int signum)

int main()
  apr_pool_t *pool;
  apr_file_t *file;

  apr_pool_create(&pool, NULL);
  apr_file_open_stdin(&file, pool);
  apr_signal(SIGINT, handler);
  wait_for_input(file, pool);
  return 0;
