i might be wrong about this cause i am vague about shmfs/tmpfs
differences if there are any
in my mind this limit is for a combination of the two
both are pageable and swappable unlike ramfs which might or might not be a part of this limit (some help i am)
i think overall limit would be
* page_size which is generally 4096
2097152*4096=8 GB total for all shared memory
now on top of that limit i think you can specify limits on tmpfs at mount
if you don't specify it defaults to half real memory.
so i guess the answer is yes as long as you got that much ram+swap
