IIRC, Casper Dik says raw block devices over 2GB either don't work at all
or only work if you're running in 64bit mode.  I forget off-hand which one
it was, unfortunately.  :/  Deja may be able to help.

Raw character devices work, but that requires that the application do its
own block alignment, and that's a bit more than INN knows how to do.
