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

/dev/hdb1              6292648   3072144   3220504  49% /mnt/mnt1
> ls -l BIG_FILE
/bin/ls: BIG_FILE: Value too large for defined data type
> strace ls -l BIG_FILE
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...
Thank You for attention, Russel.
