This patch adds a "cgi.max_processes INT". This limits the number of processes
that can be run via lighttpd. I used this because a small system might run
out of memory.

Since lighttpd 1.4.40, lighttpd no longer blocks if nproc ulimit is reached (after lighttpd starts up). See #2431 for further discussion.
Is this patch still needed? Probably not, as long as you set nproc ulimit to be sufficient number of processes for lighttpd to start up and start any piped loggers. The remaining difference between number of processes at the point and the nproc ulimit should provide similar behavior to your cgi.max_processes patch.
