    The LFS spec recommends this, too. They suggest an ino64_t in struct stat
    and struct dirent.
    4 milliards of inodes sounds like a lot. However, this style of argument
    collapsed in the past many times. If we change the interface, we should
    get it right once and for good (this also involves dev_t).

    With the decoupling of types in glibc, the kernel interface does not
    necessarily reflect in the application interface.
