HAMMER Utility - Change the minimum UNDO/REDO FIFO from 100M to 500M
* The minimum undo/redo fifo really needs to be larger. Don't play
around, make it 500M. People who want to run HAMMER on small hard
drives or images need to be cognizent of the requirement.
* This partially solves (only partially) a FIFO overflow condition.
Effectively the complexity of buffered operations hammer allows to
build up in the kernel could easily overflow a minimally-sized on-media
UNDO/REDO FIFO. Upping the requirement makes the case less likely.
The remainder of the resolution will require some fixes in the
HAMMER VFS code.
