Re: [RFC][PATCH 5/7] UBC: kernel memory accounting (core)

+ ub->ub_parms[UB_KMEMSIZE].limit = 32 * 1024 * 1024

seems a bit arbitary. 32Mb is variously vast amounts of memory and not
enough to boot depending if you are booting a PDA or a 4096 core Itanic
this limit is for newly created UBs, host system (ub0) is
_unlimited_ by default.
The idea was to limit the user by default to make system secure.
do you think it is good idea to have unlimited users created by default?
Anyway, after creating UB context normal behaviour would be to set
some limits.
