It is not as simple as that, and a filesystem cannot be larger
than the block device on which it is stored... Thus maximum
sizes depend on:
* Whether the kernel is 32 or 64 bit.
* Whether they are expressed in tibibytes or terabytes.
* Whether the kernel IO/cache subsystem uses signed or
unsigned 32/64 bit 'int's.
