__u16 s_mnt_count; /* Mount count */
__s16 s_max_mnt_count; /* Maximal mount count */
so it appears the maximum "maximal mount count" number is 32767.
It also seems like setting s_max_mnt_count to a negative value will
disable this feature entirely:
else if ((__s16) le16_to_cpu(es->s_max_mnt_count) >= 0 &&
(unsigned short) (__s16)
printk ("EXT2-fs warning: maximal mount count reached,
" "running e2fsck is recommended\n");
