That matches with my impressions of it.  All it does is define
"__DARWIN_UNIX03" and "IPHONE".  The only place in Tor that looks at
"IPHONE" is set_max_file_descriptors, where instead of defaulting to
asking for 15000 connections, it only asks for 9999.  If the define
and the fd limit change aren't needed any more, let's kill them.
