    I solved the issue.

    Recent kernels have alloc_large_system_hash() exactly for that, and
    tcp_init() uses it. It has nr_all_pages and nr_kernel_pages to
    determine the actual size of usable RAM, whereas 2.6.10 just uses
    num_physpages. That's the reason why the values in tcp_mem are way
    too high on machines with 3-4 Gig RAM.

    Thanks. /holger
