The limit is currently at 500k - if your patch is larger, please try
to split it up into topics - likely you've conflated separate
changes into one commit. Smaller patches greatly easy review, and
expedite integration. You can then mail each patch separately.

I concede that at times, e.g. if you move files around a lot, or
remove obsolete subsystems, a patch may get larger - please then
file a bug & attach it there, so as to not burden the list with
large attachments that are likely not read by anyone except the
