I think we should probably default to a much larger value - say 1024.
Unlike libvirtd, virtlockd is only accessible by privileged clients
so we don't need to be so strict on default limits. We want a value
high enough to not cause bogus failures with people starting lots of
VMs. So 1024 seems like a good high starting point

The comment should probably also say 

"Each running virtual machine will require one open connection
 to virtlockd. So 'max_clients' will affect how many VMs can
 be run on a host"

To make it extra clear what this limit is impacting.
