So the inodes in Linux file systems will have to get bigger when 64bit
Unix time really comes into eeffective use. Do you know anything about
the plans for this transition? With the recent explosion in the size
of hard disks there will be a hell of a lot if inodes to rewrite!

I don't think this is a problem, and I doubt that I'll be around when a
32bit Unix time counter rolls over. Just something to wonder about...
