[rust-dev] Mutiplexing I/O within a task

I've been trying to write tasks that wait for both I/O and channel
communication. I've been told that, to maximise communication performance,
channels do not support selecting of both channels and I/O objects.
Therefore a program should signal to a task that is waiting for I/O over
another I/O object, such as a pipe, not by sending a message over a
channel. Fair enough.
What API should I use to wait for multiple I/O objects within a task? Is
there a runtime-independent API for this?
And if I write my own I/O abstractions, for example around eventfd on
Linux, what traits (platform specific traits, I imagine) should I implement
to make them work with the runtime-independent I/O select API?
Sorry if this is already covered in the documentation. I've searched but
not found anything obvious.
Any help much appreciated.
