[erlang-questions] clipping of max# of file descriptors by ertswhen kernel poll is enabled

Where is this in the code?

I'm willing to bet that the fallback consists of using the _nkp (non- 
kernel poll) version of the polling function and that version will be  
compiled w/o ERTS_POLL_USE_KERNEL_POLL by definition.

Is that not so?
