I am very happy to see the limit removed.  But did I read that log
message correctly that this is achieved by adding an additional copy
of all of the data?  I am not familiar with the kernel internals and
so don't know if this is really as bad as it sounds.

Isn't the Hurd also one of the systems that does not have an ARG_MAX
limit?  If so then what is the behavior there?

Thanks for the additional information.
