 Presumably, when running 32 bit glibc on top of a really 32 bit linux
 kernel, linux never returns inode numbers over 32 bits. So not a glibc
 However, unless smaller inode numbers for tmpfs are not possible, I
 understand this a bug that is not feasible to fix in NetBSD's
 linux32 emulation. To mitigate this:
   - document this in bugs section of compat_linux
   - possibly warn about this in the same way as with too large
     directory offset cookies
