  Change SEM_VALUE_MAX (maximum value of a POSIX semaphore) from UINT_MAX
  to INT_MAX.  Otherwise, a process could create a semaphore (or increase
  its value via ksem_post()) beyond INT_MAX and sem_getvalue() would return
  a negative value.  sem_getvalue() is only supposed to return a negative
  value if that is the number of waiters for that semaphore.
