The problem is that some people have reported that the kernel crashes if booted with LILO and the size limit is more than 255. They haven't so far commented on how they observed that, and that's a major problem.

Just re-compiling LILO with the COMMAND_LINE_SIZE parameter changed from 256 to 512 will not work. A .bss area must be moved to avoid clobbering the kernel header.

Okay, let me ask this:

If the *kernel* limit is modified, but the LILO limit is not, what will happen? This is the real crux of the matter.
