normal operation for opcontrol --ctrx-count=value is to
value and reject runs if value is too low cause it can
the box due to nmi flood.
2.5/2.4 daemon never validate this value.
2.5 module never validate it.
2.4 validation code has been removed from module
in op_nmi.c Sun Mar 2 2003
this bug is in all oprofile version for 2.5 kernel but only
in 0.5.2cvs for 2.4 module.
work-around: don't pass foolish count value.
Note than oprof_start gui always validate this count,
starting oprofile through oprof_start is safe.
Will be fixed in cvs soon.
