Max packet size of make_packet()

Hi,

I was wondering what is the max packet size of a packet being generated
by
make_packet(). It looks like it is a multiple of 512Bytes. Is the max
also
512B?

Thanks

IIRC it’s about 4096 bytes. Maybe a bit smaller because of some
overhead. The limit is somewhat arbitrary, and could be removed by
having the whitener code reuse the whitening mask when it got to the
end.
