    kernel - Change maxproc cap calculation
    * Increase the calculation for the maxproc cap based on physical ram.
      This allows a machine with 128GB of ram to maxproc past a million,
      though it should be noted that PIDs are only 6-digits, so for now
      a million processes is the actual limit.
