    BTW Al: We have another general vfs/fs problem to handle - which

    nobody is getting it right. Ext2 can be tricked to go past the
    limit, sys5 1k sits there emitting printk messages etc.

    Which filesystems have limits other than 2^31 bytes?

    I ask this because I was looking at LFS compliance and the way we
    currently do things now isn't very smart. Only ext2 checks of
    O_LARGEFILE at present (well, their is perhaps good reason for this
    as it is one of the fre that supports multiGB files) whereas I think
    this check should be done in the VFS.
