    The LFS specification defined loff_t for 64-bit offset value.
    The ssize_t will not change.

    ReiserFS: Propably works
    EXT2: works
    Coda: Not (local cache issues, protocol is ok.)
    UFS: works (although not complete vs. O_LARGEFILE flag use.)
    NFSv2: protocol is limited to 2G-1
    NFSv3: protocol is ok, not sure of Linux implementation status.
    SAMBA: works (but linux kernel SMBFS might be another story)
