In a situation where a hosting provider of some sort is providing PostgreSQL, they should know that parameters like SHMMAX need to be increased before customers can create a larger installation. You'd expect they'd take care of that as part of routine server setup. What wouldn't be reasonable is to expect them to tune obscure parts of the kernel just for your application.
