Or we could provide an initdb flag which would set an upper bound on

How about a flag that sets the exact value for shared_buffers, rather
than a maximum?  I think a lot of users would like initdb
--shared-buffers=8GB or whatever.
That would be significantly harder to deploy in the buildfarm context.
We don't know that all the animals are capable of coping with 16MB
(or whatever target we settle on for make check) today.


Yeah - unless we allow some fallback things could get ugly. I do like the idea of allowing a settable ceiling on shared_buffers instead of having it completely hardcoded as now.
