Why are 2.6 kernels limited to 8GB VM disks?

Can someone provide the technical reason why are 2.6 kernels limited to 8GB VM disks?

Thanks

I guess your question is invalid, as I just created bigger disks for a 2.6 kernel with workstation 6.5, and I'm pretty sure it has worked for a long time.

The "reccomended value for this OS" is 8GB, but I guess that's just a suggestion based on the normal size of the OS installation.
