No, I have been running on 64-bit systems for years. That output above
is on openSUSE 12.1 64-bit.

With *plain stat* you mean the *32-bit stat* listed above ?
Is it then safe to switch all XFS partitions to be mounted with inode64
on 64-bit systems? Also for NFS v3 exports?

can try it and switch back if there are problems, so I will give it a try!
Many thanks again for your time and help!
