Running syscalls/msgstress03 on a system with less than ~4 GB of RAM fails:

    msgstress03    1  TFAIL  :  msgstress03.c:155: 	Fork failed (may be OK if under stress)

In dmesg:

    LTP: starting msgstress03
    cgroup: fork rejected by pids controller in /user.slice/user-1000.slice/session-1.scope

The reason is cgroups pid limit set by systemd user.slice.  The limit is
set for login session, also for root user.  For example on 2 GB RAM
machine it is set as:
    /sys/fs/cgroup/pids/user.slice/user-0.slice/pids.max:5207

Read the maximum number of pids and adjust the test limit.  For 2 GB RAM
machine with systemd this will result in:

    msgstress03    0  TINFO  :  Found limit of processes 5056 (from /sys/fs/cgroup/pids/user.slice/user-1000.slice/pids.max)
    msgstress03    0  TINFO  :  Requested number of processes higher than user session limit (10000 > 4556), setting to 4556
