The size limit is 1MB. It's an arbitrary limit, and it can
be found in the file mknbi-linux/mknbi.h. The relevant
defines are SYSLSIZE and SYSMSIZE. Increase these two
sizes and recompile. Then it should work. Actually, I don't
know why I've implemented this size limit. I can't see any
reason anymore, since the kernel gets always loaded into
high memory. I will therefore drop this size check in the
next netboot version.
