parentipc: IPCMNI limit check for msgmni and shmmni (diff)
ipc: IPCMNI limit check for semmni
For SysV semaphores, the semmni value is the last part of the 4-element sem number array. To make semmni behave in a similar way to msgmni and shmmni, we can't directly use the _minmax handler. Instead, a special sem specific handler is added to check the last argument to make sure that it is limited to the [0, IPCMNI] range. An error will be returned if this is not the case.
