Have you done tests _near_ 8TB with a 32-bit machine, even without these
patches? In particular, filling up the filesystem to be close to full
so that we really depend on the > 2TB code to work properly? Also, in

There have been sporadic reports of failure for large ext3 filesystems,
and some of them say that 32-bit systems fail and 64-bit systems work.
There is a kernel bugzilla bug open for this, but it was never really
identified what the source of the problem was.
