glibc alone never sets O_LARGEFILE.  It usually needs a recompile
of the application with -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 and some testing because
that may break it. 

Normally O_LARGEFILE shouldn't be checked on block devices like /dev/sda9 
though, so it's a bit strange that he gets the error here. 

strace would probably give clues.
