mkfs restricts the maximum number of INODES to 65488. The ilist number
in the directory file is a 16 bit value 2^15 = 65535. The maximum number
of ilists points to the maximum number of files. mkfs is smart enough to
ignore anything over 65488. Any number of inodes over the max is set to the
maximum. So before you flame someone get the facts straight. RTFM
