I can't speak specifically for 4.11, but earlier versions of the 4.x
family had polling support, I can't imagine they would have removed it.
(At least, there was polling support for certain devices, I used polling
mode on my cheap-o DEC-based card, which tells me that the
polling-support infrastructure was there; whether specific devices used
it or not, I also can't speak to.)
