Increase the arbitrary control.tar.gz limit from 1 MB to 16 MB. We came
across an openjdk-7-jdk package that had a 2.4MB control.tar.gz and
libsolv failed to parse it. dpkg doesn't actually apply a limit to these
files.

Yes, the limit is somewhat arbitrary. It's just there to guard against bad packages. (I'm surprised that dpkg doesn't have limit, rpm does have limits for header sizes.)
