Setting kernel variables ...error: "Invalid argument" setting key

>From the kernel doc:

tcp_mem - vector of 3 INTEGERs: min, pressure, max
	min: below this number of pages TCP is not bothered about its
	memory appetite.
	pressure: when amount of memory allocated by TCP exceeds this number
	of pages, TCP moderates its memory consumption and enters memory
	pressure mode, which is exited when memory consumption falls under "min".
	max: number of pages allowed for queueing by all TCP sockets.
	Defaults are calculated at boot time from amount of available memory.
