I think it would be better if we left TNODE_VMALLOC_MAX instead of
replacing it with BITS_PER_LONG. This way we know that we are limited
by the size of the node on 32b systems, and by the KEYLENGTH on 64b
systems. The basic idea is to maintain the logic as to why we are doing
it this way instead of just burying things by using built in constants
that are close enough to work.

So for example I believe TNODE_VMALLOC_MAX is 31 on a 32b system. The
main reason for that is because we have to subtract the TNODE_SIZE from
the upper limit for size. By replacing TNODE_VMALLOC_MAX with
BITS_PER_LONG that becomes abstracted away and it becomes more likely
that somebody will mishandle it later.
