frame_sz represents allocated memory right? What is the real range that
needs to be supported for frame_sz? Surely there is some upper limit,
and I thought it was 64kB.

Allocated memory will not be on an odd number, so fair to assume at a
minimum it is a multiple of 2. correct? At a minimum we should be able
to shift frame_sz by 1 which now covers 64kB in a u16.
