In linux kernel since version 5.1 (release Date: 2019-05-05)  
Total number of available watchpoints. An address range maps into a
specific watchpoint slot as specified in kernel/kcsan/encoding.h.
Although larger number of watchpoints may not be usable due to
limited number of CPUs, a larger value helps to improve performance
due to reducing cache-line contention. The chosen default is a
conservative value; we should almost never observe "no_capacity"
events (see /sys/kernel/debug/kcsan).
