That sounds like the fragment size - giving a block size of 32k,
rather than the more likely defaults of 1k and 8k.
The standalons fs code allocates block sized buffers for allocation
maps and (IIRC inodes), so I'd guess it isn't freeing them.
It ought to be possibly to only need disk block sized buffers - which
is also necessary in order to load /boot from a fs with large blocks.
But that requires a full understanding of the fs layout which isn't
obvious from the current #defines.
