Merged requested to merge ofourdan/xserver:raise-nofile-limit-wth-shm into master
Xwayland may open a fair amount of file descriptors for passing Wayland
buffers, even more so when using the
wl_shm either for the pointer
cursors or for when GLAMOR is not usable.
As a result, Xwayland may hit the (soft) limit of file descriptors leading to a Wayland protocol error and the termination of Xwayland.
To mitigate that risk, raise the limit to the maximum (hard) limit of file descriptors (unless of course the limit was set explicitly from the command line with "-lf").
Note that for completeness, the Wayland compositor may have to to the same, otherwise the limit might get reached on the compositor side as well.
