That's only possible if the VFS is truncating the inode number, which would also
break userspace in lots of ways like making applications think that files are
hard-linked together when they aren't.  Also, IV_INO_LBLK_64 would break.

The correct fix for that would be to make inode::i_ino 64-bit.

Note that ext4 and f2fs (currently the only filesystems that support the
IV_INO_LBLK_* flags) only support 32-bit inode numbers.
