You can't put comments on the same line as an entry. sysctl writes "10 # el valor original es 60, pero no existía en el archivo original" to /proc/sys/vm/swappiness and gets an error.

 It actually takes it two write(2) system calls to write the whole string. The kernel reads the first 3 characters, which is "10 ", then sysctl has to try again to write the trailing invalid value stuff. Maybe sysctl could use this to detect cases where people have trailing stuff on config lines?
