    sys/vm               vm_init.c 
    Add the vm.exec_map_entries tunable and read-only sysctl, which controls
    the number of entries in exec_map (maximum number of simultaneous execs
    that can be handled by the kernel).  The default value of 16 is
    insufficient on heavily loaded machines (particularly SMP machines), and
    if it is exceeded then executing further processes will generate a SIGABRT.
    This is a workaround until a better solution can be implemented.
