Sorry for replying to an older message, but a reply made in a different
thread reminded me about this project...

Also, I may have asked this before.  In fact, I'm almost sure that I started
a reply to this back in Jan/Feb, but my email client claims I never replied
to this topic...

Are you increasing only the size of ino_t, or could you also look at
increasing the size of dev_t?   (just curious...)
