It won't for the moment, but that's a problem with the readdir() API
which uses the 32-bit off_t rather than loff_t for the filldir()
interface. The reason I added an extra truncation for the value of
file->f_pos (which is used to fill the d_off field only for the last
dirent) was for consistency with this interface.

I do have a patch to change the format of filldir too, but it'll
probably have to wait until Linux 2.5.
