Comment (by wichert):

 It's an artefact of an old kernel ABI which only had 32-bit syscalls. When
 the kernel was fixed to use 64 bits where needed a new set of 64-bit
 syscalls was added. For safety reasons Linux still restricts the maximum
 filesize if an application does not indicate it can use those in order to
 prevent things like apps creating a file which they can't stat(2)

 I agree it's all a bit (ahum) painful though.

 I'll see if I can cobble up a patch.
