I sort of did it myself by changing NR_OPEN and OPEN_MAX
i didn't change NR_FILE and NR_INODE though nor any of the other things.

Now a test program to open files worked for me. It opened 1021 which is
correct as stdin. stdout and stderr take up the remaining 3.

Any idea if this is bound to go wrong? Or why the other changes are needed?
