I wonder if isolinux.bin should be limited to max. 16 sectors (of 
2KiB each), as that's the default limit in mkisofs "-G 
<generic_boot_image>" option.

If that happens to be the case, perhaps there is some additional 
option so to reserve more sectors for the boot image?

Is there any method to reduce the size of isolinux.bin?
