Now I know you are a really smart person, but it is my recollection select() craps out after "n" file descriptors. And one day we'll reach 'n'. We have some pretty reasonable 'poll' helpers in, do you think we could reuse those?

Pushed two new commits who:

  • detect and use Net-SNMP's snmp_select_info2() when available
  • use our FDMultiplexer instead of select()
  • enable SNMP support for the recursor in Travis

This allows to support file descriptors larger than FD_SETSIZE when Net-SNMP is recent enough (>= 5.5). As always when working with Net-SNMP, a huge thanks to Vincent Bernat!
