This is indeed a problem. Altera, for example has solved it by writing wrapper 
functions which look at the value of the socket descriptor (int). However, for 
this to work, you must define a range for sockets and a range for the rest, 
which is not really a great thing.

I think that either a good wrapper should be implemented with lwIP (which could 
be difficult) or (better) you could simply write this wrapper and include it in 
the port for your OS (which you have to create anyway...).
