[zeromq-dev] note on zlog.c & syslog_async

I notice zlog.c was added to czmq recently

in the machinekit project we used syslog from a cyclic process which at times generates log messages in short succession, but should not block on syslog()

we had all sorts of problems with blocking, funny hangs in futex calls and whatnot with syslog

we got rid of them for good by replacing syslog by syslog_async :
