Simo Sorce commented:

Looking at this initialization code I do not see it makes a lot of sense.
At any given time two threads in an application can be competing and opening file descriptors. There is no way to guarantee sequential fd number allocation, so this check should be removed.

The problem is whether there is code in GnuTLS that somehow depends on sequential fd allocation, if that's the case that code needs to be changed.
