Just a guess here from my old programming daze, large partitions require "Y" 
number of copies of the superblock and smaller partitions require "X" number 
of super block copies.  Maybe there is some highorder turncations occurring 
in the superblock registers or counters.  I'm not a kernel developer, nor do 
I wish to be, just IMHO a logical possibility based on my programming 
experience on Jurassic era "Big Iron" boxes
