  OTP-15781    Application(s): erl_interface
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-356

               erl_interface/ei refused to use node names with an
               alive name (the part of the node name preceding the @
               sign) longer than 63 characters and a host name longer
               than 64 characters. The total amount of characters
               allowed in a node name (alivename@REDACTED) was thus
               limited to 128 characters. These limits applied both to
               the own node name as well as node names of other nodes.
               Ordinary Erlang nodes limit the node name length to 256
               characters, which meant that you could not communicate
               with certain Erlang nodes due to their node name used.

               erl_interface/ei now allow the total amount of
               characters in a node name to be up to 256 characters.
               These characters may be distributed between alive name
               and host name in whatever way needed. That is, the
               maximum amount of characters in the alive name may be
               254 and the maximum amount of characters in the host
               name may be 254, but in total the node name must not
               exceed 256 characters.
