Then let's fix the callers! We have had 64bit inodes for close to 10 years
Why should we especially trim CD9660 fs to make them fit in 32bit?
We have several other filesystems where we can't easily do that, and
callers would need to deal with those as well.
On the other hand, the scaling is simple and could be done - does it have
any other benefits?
