Yes, you are right, further investigation revealed that in my case I was 
hitting maxsockets limit, not maxfiles limit. Not sure if the backout is 
in order or having files zone limit has some value, so that possible 
leaks can be detected and UMA zone can potentially do size-based 
optimizations in the future?

OK, what about maxsockets code? Should it be changed to?
