The pid_max sysctl doesn't enforce PID_MAX_LIMIT or sane lower bounds.
RESERVED_PIDS + 1 is the minimum pid_max that won't break alloc_pidmap(),
and PID_MAX_LIMIT may not be aligned to 8*PAGE_SIZE boundaries for
unusual values of PAGE_SIZE, so this also rounds up PID_MAX_LIMIT to it.
Compiletested on x86-64.
