Anything upwards of 256 bytes is interesting.

The architecture reserves space for it to grow up to 9 bits, though it's
unlikely it would ever get that large in reality.

So if you wanted to go crazy, you might be able to go up to 8192 bytes.

This is just for fun, since it goes outside the architecture and Linux
officially doesn't support it today in any case.  So definitely not a
