added a regression on machines with low amount of memory, since sockets

Thanks for help,

Hi Michal and Eric:

Which version of kernel did you test, did you try the newest kernel? The reason I use (PAGE_SHIFT - 10) is in the commit before 3dc43e3, the limit were calculated with:

I have tested it on 3.4.0-rc2.
