Another possibility would be to increase it locally, in the zfs test
I just made some extra experiments with the following testcase :
And it seems that the needed thread number is over 260 ... and depends
on the number of virtual CPUs in the rump kernel which is the host
CPUs number by default.
RUMP_NCPU=1 ... ulimit -r 261 ... ok
RUMP_NCPU=2 ... ulimit -r 268 ... ok
RUMP_NCPU=3 ... ulimit -r 275 ... ok
RUMP_NCPU=4 ... ulimit -r 283 ... ok
RUMP_NCPU=8 ... ulimit -r 310 ... ok
RUMP_NCPU=9 ... ulimit -r 317 ... ok
RUMP_NCPU=10 ... ulimit -r 324 ... ok
That make a 80 CPUs host require a thread limit value of 814
(=261+7*79) to be able to run this test.
