    This is "Support for Large Block Devices" under Device Drivers/Block
    Devices:

    CONFIG_LBD:

    Say Y here if you want to attach large (bigger than 2TB) discs to
    your machine, or if you want to have a raid or loopback device
    bigger than 2TB. Otherwise say N.

    The "2e73" refers to 2 to the exponent 73 bytes in size. Huge :-)
