That's a question I have: Should the 64-bit port have partial support
for 64-bit inodes?  Supporting 64-bit inodes is enough effort and risk
(especially in terms of glue code to convert back to 32-bit versions)
that I think it makes sense to wait until we know more about what they
will look like and have concrete plans to support them.
