SubjectNR_OPEN..
Date
From

I notice some work in the later kernels, that looks like enabling
NR_OPEN to be lifted. As 2.0.11 stands, what would break if NR_OPEN
was lifted to (say) 1024? or 2048?

I notice the <gnu/types.h> and <linux/post_types.h> hard define fd_set
to be 256 bits long independantly of NR_OPEN.

libc also needs re-compiling (lots of things seem to do 'fd_set var;',
pariticularly in the rpc libs).

Any parts of the kernel that would die? anything else?

Michael.
