CNFS buffers bigger than 2 GB under Linux ?

Personally, I would opt for using smaller (i.e. <2GB CNFS buffers)
rather than humongous ones ... wouldn't that give more

I don't use CNFS at all.  I believe it works without much trouble, though.
Hopefully someone else can chime in.

However, will you get the configuration you want by making many 2 GB
buffers and combining them use metacycbuffs?
