MTK folks would be the best placed to answer this, but since the
failure is reported by the firmware I'd suspect either a firmware or
hardware limitation.

Definitely yes.

AFAICT the firmware expects this exact size on its end, so I don't
believe it can be changed that easily. But maybe someone from MTK can
prove me wrong.
