Well, after reformatting my test partition ( it is 6Gb only ) I did the

lstat("BIG_FILE", 0xbffffa88) = -1 EOVERFLOW (Value too large for defi
ned data type)
When filesystem was created:
> /sbin/mkfs -t xfs -f /dev/hdb1
meta-data=/dev/hdb1 isize=256 agcount=8, agsize=196796 blks
data = bsize=4096 blocks=1574362, imaxpct=25
= sunit=0 swidth=0 blks, unwritten=0
naming =version 2 bsize=4096
log =internal log bsize=4096 blocks=1200
realtime =none extsz=65536 blocks=0, rtextents=0
Unfortunately it is an IDE disk...
In real life I have to work with files 8G...
