Nope, I took care of that:





Furthermore, neither of those files (or even my kernel config file) changed 
between the previous reboot and the one that installed 6.1.  At any rate, 
the kern.ipc.shmmax is much, much greater than the 64MB that I'd been using 
before for shared_buffers (8192 buffers * 8 KB/buffer).
