hard coded at compile time. You have to recompile the kernel to raise
the limit.

I believe these aren't actually going to help anything. I believe they
only affect traffic initiated by the firewall, or destined to daemons
listening on the firewall, which would be next to nothing. I know the
FAQ says otherwise (I wrote that FAQ quite a while ago, it needs to be
revised once I have a chance to figure out for sure what the effect of
those is in a firewall environment).
