As there is no physical limit to base X on, you'll have to invent an
artificial maximum number of logical interfaces.

Also, ordering logical interfaces might be only possible by some
configuration parameters which might be very large (in case of IPv6
addresses) so basing X on them will exceed the valid maximum for ifIndex.
