The same patches that have been posted here (or maybe ext2-devel?)
to increase the fs size to 16TB are applicable in your case.  They
are experimental at this stage, however, but as always, testing is
welcome.

The other question is why you want to have a 3TB filesystem with 1kB
blocks, unless you are consistently creating very small files...
