As far as I know GHC's scheduler uses select() internally.
At least it was using at the time of writing this paper:

"Developing a high-performance web server in Concurrent Haskell"
http://www.haskell.org/~simonmar/papers/web-server-jfp.pdf (see page 15)

Perhaps you might be interested in this paper also because of its topic.
