From `man mke2fs`...
Specify the bytes/inode ratio. mke2fs creates an
inode for every bytes-per-inode bytes of space on
the disk. This value defaults to 4096 bytes.
bytes-per-inode must be at least 1024.
Note that you will need to make a new filesystem. You can't `convert'
an existing filesystem to one with more inodes. :-(
It's probably keep your news spool on a separate partition, if
you aren't already doing so.
