SubjectMAX_ARG_PAGES has no effect?
The other day I was running a grep on a big directory tree and got a 
"Argument list too long" error. Since I'd like to have this work
without messing with find and xargs each time, I went into
include/linux/binfmts.h and changed

#define MAX_ARG_PAGES 32

to

#define MAX_ARG_PAGES 64

I recompiled and installed the kernel, but there's no change (getconf
ARG_MAX still gives 131072.) What am I missing?

I am running 2.6.13 on amd64.

Thanks,
Nick Matteo
