ramdisk_size I think is used only for the minirt ramdisk, nothing more.
Unless you plan on using a huge one (ie for pxe booting) that's over 100mb, it won't affect the DSL session.
afaik it doesn't remount the ramsize by hardcoding - it does it by a factor of 3:1
It's calculated somewhere... maybe linuxrc ?
I wouldn't suggest increasing it too much, unless you know you have a lot of ram, since the kernel and running things requires enough free space.
However, since you posted this in dsl-embedded, are you saying you want to change the memory allocated to the qemu vm? Try the -m switch
