Still no joy on 600G

If you'll recall, I was having problems with 2.3.0 and 286 2 gigabyte
cycbuffs.  It was having problems with allocating file descriptors although
there were plenty.

Tried Linux 2.4 raw support and that blew, so we decided to do the LFS
patch to get big fat files.  My cycbuff.conf looks like this:


The files themselves look like this:

-rw-r--r--    1 news     news     41249374208 Sep 15 01:55 cycbuf
-rw-r--r--    1 news     news     261081051136 Sep 15 03:19 cycbuf
-rw-r--r--    1 news     news     302332555264 Sep 14 14:30 cycbuff

Yes, that's 40G, 261G, and 302G.  I recompiled INN 2.3.0 to make sure it
got the proper LFS libc support and now this is the error I get:

Sep 15 11:47:00 terabinaries innfeed[15211]: CNFS-sm: ERROR opening '/cnfs/1/cycbuf' O_RDONLY : Value too large for defined data type

Any suggestions?
