    kernel - Increase flock() / posix-lock limit
    * Change the scaling for kern.maxposixlocksperuid to be based on maxproc
      instead of maxusers.
    * Increase the default cap to approximately 4 * maxproc.  This can lead
      to what may seem to be large numbers, but certain applications might use
      posix locks heavily and overhead is low.  We generally want the cap to
      be large enough that it never has to be overridden.
