|  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
|  bug.
|  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

I don't see why we cannot deal with this in a sane way. Perhaps even
as kludgy as to have a tmpfs flag not to generate large inodes...
