VM tuning

So, how can linux be "tuned" to guarantee a preallocation of X number of
buffers? Given an understanding of the queues in the machine, its not
difficult to estimate. In 'BSD we can allocate 8000 buffers and limit the
software so that memory will never be exhaused. Can this be done in linux?
Memory is cheap, there is no reason for 500 or even 3000 buffers to cripple
a router.
