[OpenAFS] 8gb limit?

I believe I've run into an 8gb volume limit on OpenBSD/i386 3.8-beta.

I'm running cvs head, and found that 'file too large' errors were being
given when trying to write files to my root.cell volume.. I removed a
300mb file and was able to write several smaller files.  Then I noticed
this and someone on #openafs on freenode suggested there was a historic
8gb volume limit that should be gone by now.

$ df -ih /vicepa
Filesystem     Size    Used   Avail Capacity iused   ifree  %iused
Mounted on
/dev/wd2g     21.7G    7.8G   12.8G    38%   26575 2879151     1%   /vicepa

At the moment, I'm only `testing' OpenAFS on OpenBSD so I have all this
in the root.cell volume, will refactor things into more reasonable
chunks when I set things up for real.

Thoughts on this?
