    SubjectRe: VFS 64-bit clean
    According to Remy Card:

    Since we really don't need 64 bits right now -- given the 32-bit limit
    on block numbers, no file size can exceed 44 or 45 bits -- how about
    i_osync?

    If I read the code correctly, i_osync is always zero on disk. So when
    we read an inode we could copy it to a new field that we add on the
    end of the structure and set it to zero; then when we write an inode
    we can set it from the new field and then write it out.
