Sure.  I'll need to split off the changes from the IA64 changes, and
the patch currently will crash on systems that don't use 64-bit
addressing (because of the way the page cache works).  I'd like to get
some people who have enormous filesystems and 64-bit machines to give
the patch a go.

That's why I provided both -- but 1.8M of diffs is a bit much for an
email.  (I had to change the definition of a couple of interface
functions, which meant lots of files have two line changes)
