>From fs/xfs/xfs_acl.h:

/* On-disk XFS access control list structure */
struct xfs_acl {
        __be32    acl_cnt;
        struct xfs_acl_entry {
                __be32  ae_tag;
                __be32  ae_id;
                __be16  ae_perm;
        } acl_entry[XFS_ACL_MAX_ENTRIES];

It's basically a limitation of the on-disk format definition that
has been carried over from Irix. It is an arbitrary limit - the real
limit is the maximum size of an attribute (64KB) and we plan to
raise it to that limit as part of the upcoming on-disk format
changes for metadata checksums...
