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)
