ls does not show the correct size for files greater than 4G:

% ls -ls file_greater_than_4G

8422534 -rw-rw-r-- 1 mrvn mrvn 1048576 Aug 25 23:14 file_greater_than_4G

The wrong size seems to be a kernel problem:

from /usr/src/linux/include/asm-i386/posix_types.h:
typedef long __kernel_off_t;

from /usr/src/linux/include/types.h:
typedef __kernel_off_t off_t;

from /usr/src/linux/include/linux/fs.h: struct inode {
loff_t i_size;

from /usr/src/linux/fs/stat.c: static long cp_new_stat64(struct inode * inode, struct stat64 * statbuf)
tmp.st_size = inode->i_size;


So lstat64 get the size from the internl inode structure and that uses
a 32 Bit value for the size on 32 Bit systems. There is no way to get
the correct size for big files.

May the Source be with you.
