Hi, I'm not sure if I'm looking in the right place, but does the
kernel parameter MAXUSERS (currently set to 64) have any effect of
how many entries (currently 63, with about 115 users actually logged in)
can be stored in utmp?

When defining MAXUSERS > 64 config will complain, and I realise that
in param.c that parameter is used with maxfiles.

Could this be dynamically tuned with sysctl?
