Why is the ext3 max block size == 4k?
Wouldn't just raising EXT3_MAX_BLOCK_SIZE at least temporarily alleviate this problem?
Obviously the performance issues dealing with large files are still there, and extents is a feature that becomes more and more important, but if you need something now that gives you filesystems larger than 8TB this might be something to explore.
