Ok, the 128bit.txt doesen't work because it reports in utils.h some strange
errors something about '.' and 'b' in
#define SET_BIT_AR(var. bit)      ((var)[Q_FIELD(bit)] |= Q_BIT(bit))
so i can't use that patch ....
but can't i change the affect bits from long to int .. otherwise i don't
see any other
solution then the make AFF2, which i tried but it simply reacts like
nothing happens
although it compiles nicely.

So i apply on all of you who have reached the max affects (32) to help us
code newbies with some hints on how did you solve that problem (without
128bit.patch, of course)

Thanks for everything

  Peace With You
