SubjectShould __FD_SETSIZE still be set to 1024 ?

Is there a reason for __FD_SETSIZE to be 1024 in
linux/posix_types.h and gnu/types.h ?
Why can't we increase this number by default ?

Shouldn't it be set to the real limit of the kernel ? (And let
applications define their own limit if there is a need for one ?)

PS The LKML faq remarks that increasing this can break select.
Is this still an issue ? Under what conditions ?

Thanks in advance,
