Hmm. Then I think there is something wrong anyway. Why are the max
constants not maximum values...

Interestingly the code that sets these defaults limits isn't very old.
It was a simplified version of my combine_default_restrictions function
that did what you are proposing. See the dm-devel archices around
November 2003.

The default limits were all zero before (the min_not_zero function took
care of everything) so if you think this is wrong I suggest that we
should either look into why the maximum values are not maximum values or
that we just revert the io_restrictions patch.
