Subject[resend][PATCH 1/3] mqueue: revert bump up DFLT_*MAX
Date
From: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com>

Mqueue limitation is slightly naieve parameter likes other ipcs
because unprivileged user can consume kernel memory by using ipcs.

Thus, too aggressive raise bring us security issue. Example,
current setting allow evil unprivileged user use 256GB (= 256
* 1024 * 1024*1024) and it's enough large to system will belome
unresponsive. Don't do that.

Instead, every admin should adjust the knobs for their own systems.
