The following parameters should be tunable at compile time. Some of them
exist as sysctls too.

This is far from complete

NetROM parameters are tunable via an ioctl passing a struct

4000			Size a Unix domain socket malloc falls back to 
			(tunable) should be 8K - a bit for 8K machines like
			the ALPHA
