Subject: [PATCH 0/3] Misc updates to sysv ipc

Hi Andrew,

I've updated the patches based on the feedback I got.
Could you include them in your tree and forward them to Linus?
I consider them as ready for merging.

0001-ipc-sem.c-Chance-memory-barrier-in-sem_lock-to-smp_r.patch
	When I rewrote sem_lock(), I was more conservative than
	necessary: smp_rmb() is sufficient.

0002-ipc-sem.c-increase-SEMMSL-SEMMNI-SEMOPM.patch
	- increase all limits
	- update the documentation, it was stale

0003-ipc-msg-increase-MSGMNI-remove-scaling.patch
	- increase MSGMNI to 32000
	- as a bonus, this removes around 300 lines
	- keep auto_msgmni, but document it as deprecated.

I've dropped:
	ipc-namespace-copy-settings-from-parent-namespace.patch

	- user space must handle the old logic anyway.
	- it could break userspace
