A CG is basically an inode table with a block allocation bitmap to keep
track of what disk blocks are in use.  You might have to use the -i
parameter to increase the expected average file size.  That should
allow you to increase the CG size.  Its been a LONG time since I looked
at the UFS code, but I suspect the # of inodes per CG is probably capped.
