I'll care about it too.

This patch series fixes the following problems on 32 bits architecture.
o stat64 returns the lower 32 bits of blocks, although userland
st_blocks has 64 bits, because i_blocks has only 32 bits.
The ioctl with FIOQSIZE has the same problem.
o As Dave Kleikamp said, making >2TB file on JFS results in writing
an invalid block number to disk inode. The cause is the same as
o In generic quota code dquot_transfer(), the file usage is calculated
from i_blocks via inode_get_bytes(). If the file is over 2TB,
the change of usage is less than expected. The cause is the
same as above too.
o As Trond Myklebust said, statfs64's entries related to blocks are
invalid on statfs64 for a network filesystem which has more than
2^32-1 blocks with CONFIG_LBD disabled. [PATCH 3/3]
