[patch] More precise usage of the max fd argument to select() call

my colleague Sebastian Krahmer poked with the debugger into smbd and
asked me why we always use a fixed 1024 as frist arg to sys_select() in

As I didn't know why we do it I've tried to calulate the highest
numbered descriptor and use this value for the select() call.

Or do we have a reason to use FD_SETSIZE?

See https://bugzilla.samba.org/attachment.cgi?id=781&action=view for the
proposed changes.
