Also, I do not think we would be any worse off than the current code.
getrlimit almost certainly just clobbered errno anyway. Either it is
worth saving for the whole function, or not at all (and I think not at
all).

Yeah, I think pulling the variable into its own block makes this more
readable.

This is probably OK. I assume sane systems actually provide OPEN_MAX,
and/or have a working getrlimit in the first place.

The fallback of "1" is actually quite low and can have an impact. Both
for performance, but also for concurrent use. We used to run into a
problem at GitHub where pack-objects serving a clone would have its
packfile removed from under it (by a concurrent repack), and then would
die. The normal code paths are able to just retry the object lookup and
find the new pack, but the pack-objects code is a bit more intimate with
the particular packfile and cannot (currently) do so. With a large
enough mmap window and descriptor limit, we just keep the packfiles
open. But if we have to close them for resource limits (like a too-low
descriptor limit), then we can end up in the die() situation above.
