Hi -
  The file /usr/include/sys/shm.h defines SHMLBA  as  __getpagesize() which
is 16K. whereas in /usr/include/asm/shmparam.h thereis another define of
SHMLBA as (1024*1024) and a comment saying on IA-64 architecture  due to
some performance problems it is better to use this alignment.

  We want to know what the recommended SHMLBA should be.

thanks in advance,
