even if maxperm is set low, you will still build filesystem cache
until you hit minfree, then you will only page file pages. you can stop
this by setting a hard limit for maxperm (strict_maxperm) or you can
stop pages being cached for a filesystem in the 1st place by mounting
them -rbrw (release behind)
