    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.

    Cheers, Andreas
