Ok, but what hypothetical use do you have for 8K inotify watches?

This warning happens both with Ubuntu Lucid and Ubuntu Lucid coupled
with a mainline .34-rc1 kernel. I assume the warning does not appear
in OpenSUSE? If so, is that because OpenSUSE carries a kernel patch
that changes the default maximum inotify watches limit?
