[arch-dev-public] Raise default inotify limits

Hi list,

I would like to add a sysctl.d/10-arch.conf file to filesystem with the
following content:

# Raise inotify resource limits
fs.inotify.max_user_instances = 1024
fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 524288

To fix https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/47830 and other issues; e.g. "flow",
used for JS development, runs a cache daemon that silently malfunctions and
uses old source file content when it cannot create any more watches.

Any objections?
