I'm a newbie in this field, so my question will seem dummy for many, 
think. I've just compiled xfs into my kernel, because I need to operate 
on large data files. First thing I've done after mounting my new xfs was:
> dd if=/dev/zero of=BIG_FILE
Great. Now I have file, that I can not stat even (so rm does not work, he 
he). So, how can I use large files, since maximum filesize in linux is 
limited to 0x7fffffff ??? Just increasing this number in kernel sources 
isn't the best idea, is it ??? Thanks in advance,
