Also, my initial read testing showed equal performance for shm vs
non-sham (mmap?). And my write test didn't seem to be working at all,
but that could be something with how I tried to setup slamd. I will
pursue this issue a little more, and see if I can come up with an ITS.
(I'll probably just stick with non-shm, though)
Can I move away from shm without reimporting my database? Something
like delete that config and then db_recover/restart openldap?
(possibly delete my log.* and __db*)
