	sure, I should say i've never seen it report properly since we added
another disk shelf to our netapp last friday. i'm assuming the problem
arises when the filesystem achives 1tb or greater.

I was working on a fix when my filesystem df stats suddenly reverted
back to normal, so I lost my test case :)

If you're willing to do some kernel rebuilding, start adding printfs
inside nfs_statfs and related functions, and determine exactly where
the sign change occurs.
