Surely that's obvious: use a non-"simple" data structure, rather than
the simple array you use in the patch.  (It might be reasonable to use
the array until a UID too large for it is encountered.)

Also, your patch blindly assumes that limit on UIDs, without checking
that the actual UIDs conform.  This is a disaster waiting to happen.
