out of filedescriptors

BSDI (BSD/OS 4.x) supports large files as CNFS buffers, but it doesn't
allow memmapping of raw SCSI partitions.  I consider this a bug, since the
man page says it is supported.   It's not broken, the code is simply not
there in the kernel.  Perhaps they'll add it later.  I've asked them to.

On the other hand, it does allow you to get 3000+ file descriptors if needed.
