I believe this patch should solve it. Please test and confirm before
I send it upstream.


My test successfully completed two times, writing a 900GB file in each run.
I used a patched 2.6.27.10 x86_64 kernel.

On an unpatched system this test usually fails before reaching 100GB.

Thank you for fixing this issue that quick.

Regards, Peter.
