Error in facter simplib_sysctl

Description

When running puppet agent in debug mode, get an error that
bignum is to big to convert to long long when facter is trying to retrieve kernel variables shmall,shmin shmmax and shmmni

shmmal is already a seperate facter so these can probably be moved out like that one.

I would like to reprioritize this to the next sprint, because this issue makes debugging puppet impossible with the --debug flag.

Filed FACT-1732 with the results of the investigation from SIMP-3556.

Recommend closing until a new version of Facter is available.

Can we reopen this and remove the offending facts?

We currently use the offending facts in libvirt. Possibly incorrectly, but we haven't had time to investigate
