Don Zickus and I have been trying to reproduce the problem with
the config file Fengguang Wu sent to us, but so far have been unsuccessful.

Given there are 5 other locations in the code that need to be changed
from [128] to [KSYM_NAME_LEN], and that we still haven't found Fengguang's
problem yet, I'd be in favor of letting Michal's revert patch 2/2 go forward.

That would give us time to find the issue Fengguang reported.
