Yeah.  :-(  My crazy idea would be, because setting setting
available_mem without a restart would not be supported, to allow the
backend to output suggestions, e.g.:

        test=> SHOW available_mem = '24GB';
        Auto-tuning values:
        shared_buffers = 6GB
        work_mem = 10MB
        ERROR:  parameter "available_mem" cannot be changed without restarting 
the server
