Having some of the file descriptors closed is not something that
we should optimize for, but then again it makes sense to still
keep going, mostly for consistency reasons: One day we may
have a use case for a dynamically growing and shrinking set of
queues. Falling back to the first queue is probably ok, we can
always add optimizations when this becomes a real use case.
