 In http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/irix-linux.html
 it states: 

* Linux XFS filesystems are limited to 2 Terabytes in size due to 
  limitations in the Linux block device I/O layers. 

* The maximum accessible file offset of a Linux XFS file is 16 Terabytes on 4K
  page size and 64 Terabytes on 16K page size. 

 Question: if the max filesystem is 2T, what is the point of discussing a 16T
 file offset? What did i miss?
