Thanks for including this.  Unfortunately upstream is going with the
absurdly low number, and we would rather not patch the kernel just to
change the default if there is a sane way to handle this in userspace.  I
am working on the KSM test cases for virt test day tomorrow right now, and
I will include the init script (and ksmtuned if it is ready in time).
