I was trying to see if shm_get/read/write could use the HUGE page
information on limits of shm segments v. large mem segs on x86_64...
support builtin to my kernel. (up to 1GB).
But shm get/read pooped out at 8193.. (4097 worked) -- was doubling
Seems like something is limiting it to the 8k page size.
Wouldn't the kernel be the only place this should be checked, as
it would be the only place that would really know it's maximum
page size... or are there limit checks in ...??? perl? gnu-lib's
of the shm-ipc? Or maybe the kernel call just doesn't know to try
large page support?
Was trying to shortcut to the right "Queue", since
submitting a bug against Perl core ipc, is no good if it
doesn't do limit checks...
FWIW... the perl-ipc call fails to use available HUGE page support...
;-)...(though why is the Q?)
