This would make sense if the `getattr' reply would contain the number of
blocks (of some specified size) that the file occupies on the remote system.
But the NFSv3 spec says that the field in question (`va_bytes') is just a byte
count. Looks like somebody got block-to-page macros reversed; there's already
a related typo in SunOS 5's <sys/param.h>...
