Restore file descriptor limit in subprocesses

Problem reported by Philipp Stephani (Bug#24869).
* src/callproc.c (child_setup) [!DOS_NT]:
Call restore_nofile_limit in the child.
* src/process.c (nofile_limit) [HAVE_SETRLIMIT]: New static var.
(restore_nofile_limit): New function.
(init_process_emacs) [HAVE_SETRLIMIT]: Set the new var.
