Description

On or-talk, Olaf Selke reports:

debugging the "[warn] Error creating network socket: Too
many open files" messages I just found the max number of
file descriptors apparently being hard coded in or.h to a
value of 15.000. Raising the number using ulimit -n thus
shows no effect.

The 15000 cap once made sense when we had a static array of connections, but now that the list is unlimited, there
is no need to have it be an upper bound. Let's change it from an upper bound into a default.
