Thanks for explaining, Matthias. I knew about the 4 GB window and the
limited kernel address space, but just didn't think about vnodes/etc.
overflowing the available kernel space.
What is the proper behavior? Limit vnode tables and similar? Resort to
arch-specific ugliness such as a separate segment for vnodes?
