In the kernel's code, most likely.  You may be able to change this limit
through kernel configuration.  I know HP-UX has a kernel configuration thing
in SAM where you can tune various parameters, and I think AIX has some way to
do this also.  It usually amounts to selecting an option or editing a file,
and then building a new kernel (instructions for how to do so should be
included with your machine) and rebooting.  If you have a support contract
with IBM for your AIX, they should be able to tell you exactly what to do to
increase this limit, or at least let you know that there is no way to increase
