thread.c (do_select): fix leak on exception

When do_select is interrupted and raise happens from
RUBY_VM_CHECK_INTS_BLOCKING, the original FD sets we copied
do not get freed, leading to a memory leak.  Wrap up all the
FD sets into a Ruby object to ensure the GC can release an
allocations made for rb_fdset_t.

This leak existed since Ruby 2.0.0 (r36430)
```


I found this bug because I was tracking down a problem
while working on timer-thread elimination.
