In ext/snmp/snmp.c, it is possible to exit php_snmp_internal without closing the snmp session when performing an snmpget. This leads to 'too many open files' errors on a script with many snmpget requests.

Reproduce code:
ext/snmp/snmp.c: Lines 427 to 430

                    if (st == 1) {
                        *return_value = *snmpval;

should be changed to:

                    if (st == 1) {
                        *return_value = *snmpval;

Expected result:
No more 'too many open files' errors.

Actual result:
No more 'too many open files' errors.
