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?
