There's a "2017" mention in the thread referenced by Petr, maybe that's where
you saw it.

If your problem is really being out of free inodes, I don't think the
option is your solution, because it only increase the number of files per
directory limit, it does not increase the available number of inodes.

Maybe you should manually create the filesystem with mke2fs and specify
a bigger number of inodes with its "-N" parameter.

Tell us if you find a way around the problem.
