Hmm.. This seems to be changing the design completely from where the
changes were previously going.. While there is nothing particularly
wrong with this approach, it is a bit difficult to understand why there
was such a change in the design rather than a minor change to fix the
previous version to not end up commenting out both options in a way that
resulted in a busy loop.

I guess you don't care too much about the exact mechanism, so for now,
we might as well go with this addition of CONFIG_ELOOP_EPOLL=y and leave
the cleanup of CONFIG_ELOOP for future, if anyone cares enough about it.
Could you please confirm that this combination of the last two patches
have been tested to work with epoll?
