Subjecti_blocks overflow

Maximum file size on Linux is 2^41-2049.
What happens when you create file so large and overflow i_blocks
variable? (because that file will use more than 2^32 blocks, there are
indirect blocks too) There seems to be no check for that in

This bug applies to both 2.4 and 2.6.

Does anybody have so large raid to try it?
