I cannot create a 28TB ext4 filesystem. It keeps complaining about:

mke2fs: Size of device /dev/sdc1 too big to be expressed in 32 bits

This is still the case when using the latest e2fsprogs.

    Ah, some further reading shows you cannot have more the 2^31-1 blocks. A limit which I want to cross here.

    Can this limit be lifted?

    XFS seems to be doing fine, but that's not what I want to use.
