How big are pages on arm64? Because we shouldn't get to this path if
the string is bigger than PAGE_SIZE. But I know that on PPC64,
PAGE_SIZE can be 64K, and 60612 is less than that. Thus, if we get
there, the test is against signed int:16 (16 bit signed integer) that
can go up to most 32768. If the string size is bigger than that, you
would get this error.

I would just say to ignore it. The only thing that can happen if
someone does this is to trigger the warning. Unless if it is considered
a form of DOS, where userspace just bombards the console by triggering
this waring. But I don't see a problem with the actual design. There's
no reason we should be processing string variables bigger than 32768 in
