Hello everybody

kern/18256 requests a bump of MAXPARTITIONS to 16 on hpcarm. A quick
grep shows that rouhgly half of our arch have it definded to 16 and the
other half have it defined to 8.

Is there a particular reason why MAXPARTITIONS is not consistent accross
platforms? This prevents moving a disk from one arch to another.

I thought about committing the patch supplied in kern/18256, but I
wonder if the MAXPARTITIONS stuff cannot be made machine independent.
