[RFC][PATCH v2 7/7] Do not recompute msgmni anymore if explicitely set by user

[PATCH 07/07]

This patch makes msgmni not recomputed anymore upon ipc namespace creation /
removal or memory add/remove, as soon as it has been set from userland.

As soon as msgmni is explicitely set via procfs or sysctl(), the associated
callback routine is unregistered from the ipc namespace notifier chain.
