I see that some of the discussion on the mailing list has to do with smaller disk partition. I would like this option for big partisions (i.e. 2 TB and greater) so I can have the option to continue compatibility with Networker as I could with older Linux kernels.

Hi Harry,

It appears that "mount -o inode32 /dev/sda1 /mnt" ignores the
inode32 option and mounts with inode64.   After the partition is
mounted I can do "mount -o remount,inode32 /mnt" and it remounts
with inode32.   But shouldn't there be a way to do the initial mount
with inode32?   I am running Linux 3.7.3 on an amd architecture.   I
would like this option since I am using EMC Networker for backups
(yes, I know about the complaints).  Thanks.
# mount -o inode32 /dev/sdb1 /mnt/scratch
# grep /dev/sdb1 /proc/mounts
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/scratch xfs rw,relatime,attr2,inode64,noquota 0 0
# mount -o remount,inode32 /mnt/scratch
# grep /dev/sdb1 /proc/mounts
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/scratch xfs rw,relatime,attr2,inode32,noquota 0 0

We'll get this fixed.
