I would be in favor of that, or perhaps some other formula (eg, maybe
the minimum should be less than 8 for when you've got very little shmem).
I think that the reason it's historically been a constant is that the
original coding took advantage of having a compile-time-constant number
of buffers --- but since we went over to the common SLRU infrastructure
for several different logs, there's no longer any benefit whatever to
using a simple constant.
