This wont correct Vegard reported problem yet, but following patch
should reduce ram usage a lot (32 bytes instead of 2048 bytes per scm in
Vegard test program)

Thanks

[PATCH net-next-2.6] net: scm: lower SCM_MAX_FD

Lower SCM_MAX_FD from 255 to 253 so that allocations for scm_fp_list are
halved. (commit f8d570a4 added two pointers in this structure)

scm_fp_dup() should not copy whole structure (and trigger kmemcheck
warnings), but only the used part. While we are at it, only allocate
needed size.
