I've tried increasing it to 50. Here's the result for a single test:
iwlagn 0000:10:00.0: Failed to allocate SKB buffer with GFP_ATOMIC. Only 25 free buffers remaining.
iwlagn 0000:10:00.0: Failed to allocate SKB buffer with GFP_ATOMIC. Only 48 free buffers remaining.
iwlagn 0000:10:00.0: Failed to allocate SKB buffer with GFP_ATOMIC. Only 0 free buffers remaining.
iwlagn 0000:10:00.0: Failed to allocate SKB buffer with GFP_ATOMIC. Only 0 free buffers remaining.
iwlagn 0000:10:00.0: Failed to allocate SKB buffer with GFP_ATOMIC. Only 48 free buffers remaining.

This is with current mainline (v2.6.32-rc4-149-ga3ccf63).

The log file timestamps don't tell much as the logging gets delayed,
so they all end up at the same time. Maybe I should enable the kernel
timestamps so we can see how far apart these failures are.
