what am i gonna break if i raise the size of the (my) msgbuf from

#define	MSG_BSIZE	(4096 - 3 * sizeof(long))

to something much larger.  say...

#define	MSG_BSIZE	(16384 - 3 * sizeof(long))

i've added so many printf's to the kernel that it no only doesn't fit
on the screen, but syslogd loses a bunch of it (it never shows up in
the logs) and i can never see it at all.

am i gonna break things badly?
