static const int N_MAX_REGIONS = 1000;
static const int N_MAX_REGIONS = 122070;

(122070 * 16384 ~= 2 GB)

and recompile

However the algorithm that handles cached region eviction/lookup might exhibit bad 
performance with such a big numbers since it is rather native right now, so I'd suggest you to 
test carefully. It should probably use a hashset rather than an array.

Ultimately I'd like that this setting to be user tunable, so might be worth that you file an 
enhancement ticket at https://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/newticket
