I seem to be getting some strange interactions between kernel space and
userspace with the statfs() call.
On an nfs-mounted but unaccessable system, the statfs() call is
returning a block count of 4294967295. Since the kernel statfs struct
has this field defined as a long and this is a 32-bit system, this is
It turns out that the userspace headers define the "blocks" field as a
__fsblkcnt_t, which is then defined as __u_long.
What do I do? Do I cast it to a long since I know that this is what the
kernel is using?
The system in question is a yellowdog system, but the same problem is
present on a recent mandrake box as well. Is this a redhat issue?
