   So lstat64 get the size from the internl inode structure and that
   uses a 32 Bit value for the size on 32 Bit systems.

off_t != loff_t, so your analysis is not correct :-)

I think the real problem is that your version of libc is not calling
lstat64 and is instead calling the 32-bit lstat, you need to upgrade
glibc to get your system to take advantage of the extended lfs/64
syscalls in the kernel.
