In current kernel head there is an entry in
sysctl.conf-3.0.0-rc2-1-default that says:

which is an invalid sysctl value

it should say AFAICS

kernel.hung_task_timeout_secs = 0

Also it take time to me to understand from where the kernel_shm* value comes
as nothing is commented in /lib/sysctl.d after June 6.

For example postgresql tuned a bit ( as no admins would run a 32MB instance )
crash at startup due to insufficient shmmax shmall
Would be cool to have a comment in or either /etc/sysctl.conf and
telling that each kernel flavor apply special configuration that can be read in

Also if possible open for read the mentionned bnc, normal user can have any
description for the why/how

# Increase defaults for IPC (bnc#146656)
# Disable the hung task timer by default. (bnc#552820)


Can you file a bug for these? The values in these sysctl files should have matched what the old per-flavor values had. Assign it to me.
