RE: [Linux-ia64] Kernel Shared Memory Max (shmmax)

If you need any preference of value for shmmax, then please go with 4G
(though there are utilities that expect size of shared memory segment to be
only int :) but that should be fixed seperately). Could you please make this
change in your next patch.
