[swift-users] Linux equivalent of macOS/iOS run loop, aka libdispatch/Dispatch on Linux

I've got Swift and libdispatch installed and linking under Ubuntu 16.04, but I'm not sure how to set up the Linux equivalent of the macOS run loop in order to service all the dispatch queues.

I'm having a hard time finding an example of how to do this. Some GCD C code calls dispatch_main() from the main thread after initial program setup. I couldn't find an equivalent in the Dispatch package, when looking through the sources.

Can anyone tell me how to do this, or point me at an example?
