Increasing shared memory segments

increasing the maximum size of a shared memory segment can be done by
editing include/asm/shmparams.h SHMMAX. But there still is a limit of 128
MB. I would like to know if this is a hard limit? Is it possible at all to
increase the maximum size of a segment to 512MB?
