Subject[PATCH] tmpfs: Don't use 64-bit inodes by defulat with 32-bit ino_t
Currently there seems to be an assumption in tmpfs that 64-bit
architectures also have a 64-bit ino_t. This is not true; s390 at
least has a 32-bit ino_t. With CONFIG_TMPFS_INODE64=y tmpfs
mounts will get 64-bit inode numbers and display "inode64" in the
mount options, but passing the "inode64" mount option will fail.
This leads to the following behavior:

# mkdir mnt
# mount -t tmpfs nodev mnt
# mount -o remount,rw mnt
mount: /home/ubuntu/mnt: mount point not mounted or bad option.

As mount sees "inode64" in the mount options and thus passes it
in the options for the remount.

Ideally CONFIG_TMPFS_INODE64 would depend on sizeof(ino_t) < 8,
but I don't think it's possible to test for this (potentially
CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_64BIT_INO_T or similar could be added, but I'm
not sure whether or not that is wanted). So fix this by simply
refusing to honor the CONFIG_TMPFS_INODE64 setting when
sizeof(ino_t) < 8.
