    I have a patch sitting in incoming at Linux-patches@samba.anu.edu.au
    that would make this possible. However it seems that Linus has gotten
    bored of looking there, and there hasn't been any activity there for
    over a month now.

    http://samba.anu.edu.au/cgi-bin/linux-patches/incoming?id=267

    The patch implements the bigbuffer support required for this use, and
    patches "sg" to actually use it. A two-line patch will allow st to
    also use this......

    Roger.
