Do you have CONFIG_LBD (or maye now CONFIG_LBDAF) set on the newer
32-bit kernel? You'll need that.
If you do ....
file-store is about 2T? What is the filesystem block size? (xfs_info
on the mountpoint would tell you)
The test is looking at whether the nr of filesystem blocks overflows
based on CONFIG_LBD or not...
and the function hasn't changed since 2007.... hrm.
I'll put my money on CONFIG_LBDAF.
