If a device is unplugged while an interrupt is pending, the
read call to the uio device to remove it from the poll wait list
can fail resulting in it being continually polled forever. This
change checks for the read failing and if so, unregisters the device
as an interrupt source and causes the wait list to be rebuilt.

This race has been reported and observed in production.
