Allow arbitrary number of phones per task

The number of IPC connections a task can have is limited by the value of IPC_MAX_PHONES, which is currently 64. If we start implementing components in the way suggested in #670, ie. when individual objects inside of those components become IPC endpoints and IPC connections become de facto capabilities, having a hard limit on the number of IPC connections may prove too limiting.

Instead, the task should be allowed to have as many IPC connections as it desires, subject to possible resource-accounting policies.
