Description of problem:
Thdread-max has been lower as default to 1024, when it was 4024 with other
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot machine
Actual Results: threads-max is lower than before
I can echo 4024 > thread-max
The default max threads value depends on the amount of memory actually.
The kernel uses the formula:
max_threads = mempages / (THREAD_SIZE/PAGE_SIZE) / 16;
which _should_ provide a reasonable default for your system.
Documenting this default change might be the best thing to do.
