    Added gc_threshold overrides to sysctl.conf

    When clouds have a large number of hosts, the default size of the ARP
    cache is too small. The cache can overflow, which means that the
    system has no way to reach some ip addresses.

    Setting the threshold limits higher addresses the situation, in a
    reasonably safe way (the maximum impact is 5MB or so of additional RAM
    used). Docs on ARP at,
    and more discussion of the issue in the bug.
