Subject: RE: [PATCH 1/1] Only output msgmni value at boot time

Diffing my before/after dmesg(8) output:
< msgmni has been set to 7964 for ipc namespace a000000100a1ad58
---
> msgmni has been set to 7964

Much prettier.  Thank you.

I'll leave it to SGI to ponder whether it is correct to compute
msgmni based on a linear function of lowmem (their big systems can
have terabytes of memory, all of which is counted as lowmem).

> This patch applies to 2.6.26-rc2-mm1.
