Subject Removing the config
Date Thu, 04 Jun 2020 19:52:59 GMT
The config `` determines the default Max IOBuffer size that's
used when the caller (e.g HostDB alloc, POST request buffer) asks for a chunk of memory via
the `iobuffer_size_to_index()` or `buffer_size_to_index()` interfaces without explicitly passing
in the max IOBuffer. 
This can cause issues such as or worse
memory corruption such as
After some discussion with Leif, we think we should let callers explicitly pass in the max
buffer sizes when asking for unknown sized memory chunks (e.gĀ 
proxy.config.http.max_post_size and a new configĀ 
proxy.config.hostdb.max_buffer.size) and remove the hidden default max io config.

Please let us know if there are any concerns/comments.
