Bug#559647: aborts when making a filesystem larger than 2048 MiB

Package: ufsutils
Version: 7.2-3
Severity: important

mkfs aborts when making a filesystem larger than 2048 MiB.  This
size limit (equivalent to INT32_MAX sectors) seems to indicate that
it's using 32-bit signed types to measure number of blocks instead
of unsigned 64-bit.

$ sudo mkfs.ufs /dev/ad1
Reduced frags per cylinder group from 94064 to 94056 to enlarge last cyl group
/dev/ad1: 4194304.0MB (0 sectors) block size 16384, fragment size 2048
	using 22832 cylinder groups of 183.70MB, 11757 blks, 23552 inodes.
