Can you add a short write-up for Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt
to explain the effect, and how a user should pick what value to use
(examples would be good ... if SGI want to throw in some
values for small/large Altix boxes, that would be good too).

Is '6' a reasonable default if the parameter is not set?
