I have not found any conclusive answers on maximum filesystem sizes.
I think the hard limit for a filesystem with the current kernel is
8TB, but some software may have problems with it when it goes over
2TB.  

I don't have a way to test a filesystem that large since I don't have
the storage.  I'll just have to see what happens when I get there.
