Browsing through CVS, it looks like this change was committed near the
end of February this year.  I've not tested it, but the new MAXDSIZ is
1GB vs the 64MB that was previously allowed.

And it is enabled with the "USE_TOPDOWN_VM" kernel config parameter
(of course this won't be of use to you for releases from the 1.6 branch):

Mind the wrap.
