Okay. I tested your patches and mkfs changes.

I am able to create a >8TB filesystem and was able to
mount it :)

elm3b29:~ # df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2 79366980 76545536 2821444 97% /
tmpfs 3574032 8 3574024 1% /dev/shm
/dev/md0 9833697924 131228 9677640816 1% /mnt

I run single "fsx" tests and quickly ran into issues. fsx complained
about data mismatch :(

Here is the "dmesg" output:
