Subject: [PATCH] AIO: Reduce number of threads for 32bit hosts

On hosts with limited virtual address space (32bit pointers), we can very
easily run out of virtual memory with big thread pools.

Instead, we should limit ourselves to small pools to keep memory footprint
low on those systems.

This patch fixes random VM stalls like

  (process:25114): GLib-ERROR **: gmem.c:103: failed to allocate 1048576 bytes

on 32bit ARM systems for me.
