This is an updated and properly autoconf-guarded patch for this
previously reported issue:
Jacek Drobiecki recently sent me a patch which stops postgresql to
actively violate the system limit of maximum open files
(RLIMIT_NOFILE) in src/backend/storage/file/fd.c, function
This avoids irritating kernel logs (if system overstep violations are
enabled) and also the grsecurity alert when starting PostgreSQL.
I think we can put this into 8.4 or the first commit fest of 8.5.
