I will be nice if the discussion is on the list or the result. Now a lot 
of time is wasted till we finally come to a result.  Is not a bug then 
it is an enhancement.

Oke i have implemented it with NODEALLOCMAXPS and it is a  sched 
parameter and the default is FALSE.

If i send the patches will it be incorporated in the next snaphot release?
