> SMALL:47: warning: minimum of 8 maxusers assumed
A few things that shouldn't depend on MAXUSERS probably explode!
I did look at waht depends on it, IIRC the only things that grab
space are the hash tables for pids and pgrps and the timer wheel
table (which shouldn't depend on MAXPROC anyway).
The piece of paper with the notes is hiding under piles of dross :-)
It is probable that the memory footprint for most ports isn't
really affected by MAXUSERS < 8 - you might save a few pages.
MAXUSERS is actually a bigger problem for large systems....
