Actually this is a server issue. Patches to raise this limit to NGROUPS_MAX
(65536 in Linux) exist for a long time. And they work well and are still

Permission checking is a server task. So, as long as you're using Linux NFS
servers only you may raise that limit to 64K groups, no matter what client
you are using.
