Those things seem to have triggered some sort of bug.
Rest assured people do have real-world Linux boxes that have over 512 cpus in a single system image. SGI has boxes, at least, have Linux boxes with 4096 cpus in a single system image.
As far as clustering goes.. there are Linux systems with tens of thousands of cpus going.
Linux kernel itself does scale past 8 cpus. Of course nothing is perfect.
