That limit is absolute and may not be overrun. The co-ordinates of the
64 bit kernel lie immediately after the 128 char buffer. Usually the
system is unbootable if you overrun this limit.
Unfortunately, palo is rather poor about checking this limit when
installing the image or modifying the command line...
