Do you have CONFIG_LBD (or maye now CONFIG_LBDAF) set on the newer
32-bit kernel?  You'll need that.

If you do ....

file-store is about 2T?  What is the filesystem block size?  (xfs_info
on the mountpoint would tell you)

The test is looking at whether the nr of filesystem blocks overflows
based on CONFIG_LBD or not...

and the function hasn't changed since 2007.... hrm.

I'll put my money on CONFIG_LBDAF.
