| what's the purpose of this feature?

There are protocols (lustre for example) that mandate the use of fixed ports
in the bindresvport range. It can happen randomly that portmap uses those
ports before the needing programs claim them. Linux has "portreserve" which
is much kludgier.

I've been thinking about creating something more efficient, but I didn't come
up with something better and decided that using fd_set was less complex.
