Very easy. Actually, I fired off my message without properly looking at
2.1.x code. 2.1.x already dynamically allocates memory to super-blocks,
so all we need is a /proc interface to bump the limit. greps again...
There's *already* a sysctl interface to change max-super!

Apologies for filling mailboxes with useless mail. My only excuse is that
2.1.119 doesn't manage to get past trying to mount remote nfs filesystems
for me.
