I think the maximum is seven without extra efforts.
A possible setup could look like this:
Number Media /dev Partition Type Content
31, 6 NAND mtdblock6 Dist1
179, 0 SD-Card mmcblk0 (raw device)
179, 1 SD-Card mmcblk0p1 primary partition Dist2
179, 2 SD-Card mmcblk0p2 primary partition Dist3
179, 3 SD-Card mmcblk0p3 primary partition Dist4
179, 4 SD-Card mmcblk0p4 extended partition logical partitions
179, 5 SD-Card mmcblk0p5 logical partition Dist5
179, 6 SD-Card mmcblk0p6 logical partition Dist6
179, 7 SD-Card mmcblk0p7 logical partition Dist7

I just had a look. A lot of the information
is just wrong or at least outdated. I now
understand why most users install qi ;-)
Various efforts have been made to supply a
bootmenu for qi (e.g. by using kexec).
I don't know whether they where successful.
I still stay with u-boot for my multi dist
setup, cause it has a boot menu. It's only
constraint is that the kernel need's to be
within the first 2G of the SD-Card (I just
prepared a special subdirectory on the first
partition). Booting kernels >2M need special
boot parameters, but has been reported to
work on this list.

I use one to have a signal on my Desk (antenna
outside the window).
