Packet processing in linux is a function of physical ram, the process can't be paged. So with 64bit we can support the volumes of ram needed to safely boost the session counter past 10k.

Both issues need solved, but only one can be done at a time. For now 64bit support is the front burner issue, as without it expanding the session limit is pointless.
