If I don't mistake, that is an approximate value of how many users you
will have concurrently running. The kernel reserves space on bootup for
that 64 users, but you can run more than those then. The kernel will
grow the table dinamically when needed.

BTW each user run, each xterm, each telnet, etc takes one entry in
that table.
