Umm. No. The object of LFS stuff is so that programs that can't

need to pass O_LARGEFILE over the protocol and knfsd doesn't need
to handle it. But with out specifying O_LARGEFILE you should be
limited to 2GB on 32bit systems.

THis means we limit all NFS file sizes to 32-bits unless we have
NFSv3? (I assume v3 is where the 64-bit file sizes comes from? or
does it predate that?)
