maximum number of master/slave pty pairs under Linux.

Dear Kernel Hackers,

Is there any way to allocate more than 256 master/slave pseudo-terminal pairs
under Linux? Under DYNIX/ptx it is a simple matter of relinking the kernel and
surely Linux should be able to beat any commercial OS in ANY respect?

Thanks in advance,
Tigran A. Aivazian.

days) to linux-kernel list.
