fcntl and getdtablesize

Cygwin's fcntl() function doesnt seem to handle O_NONBLOCK/
FNDELAY at all.  I am able to use ioctl() with FIONBIO for
sockets, but fcntl() should be useable for this as well.

Is there a way to raise the limit on open file descriptors?
getdtablesize() currently returns 64 (NOFILES).  There
appears to be a setdtablesize() but it looks like it is
for internal use only.  If this is not currently supported,
will it ever be supported?
