    Eh ... I don't think all that shortsighted ... that 4096 limit has
    probably been around longer than Linux. Linus or hpa or others would
    know the history better than I do.

    We're pushing into and finding those limits as best we can, here at
    SGI ;). You've heard of the canary in the mine shaft, and the elephant
    in the room. Well, we're the elephant in the canary cage.
