The tunable range is (512, 8192), so 512M is the minimum.

Sure, I knew it can be disabled via /sys, actually we can do even
more in user-space, that is totally move the 512M check out of kernel,
why we didn't?

In short, I think we should either remove the 512M from kernel, or
make 512M to be tunable.
