So I bisected a 32bit hole problem in 4.15 down to this one.

tar selftests never finish during build on the 32bit kernel. The stack
trace is something like this:
tar R running task 0 24780 24590 0x00000000
Call Trace:
? ext4_map_blocks+0x2fa/0x5f0
? ext4_map_blocks+0x348/0x5f0
? ext4_iomap_begin+0x39b/0x4d0
? ext4_evict_inode+0x5c0/0x5c0
? iomap_apply+0x61/0x160
? iomap_to_fiemap+0xd0/0xd0
? iomap_seek_data+0xac/0x110
? iomap_seek_hole_actor+0x80/0x80
? ext4_llseek+0x13a/0x140
? ext4_file_mmap+0x90/0x90
? SyS_llseek+0x7b/0xc0
? do_int80_syscall_32+0x51/0x100
? entry_INT80_32+0x36/0x36


The tar test does this:
AT_TAR_CHECK([
AT_DATA([mapfile],
[0 =2560
m4_for([i], 1, 999, 1, [10M =2560
])])
genfile --sparse --file BIGFILE --block-size 4K - < mapfile || AT_SKIP_TEST
tar -f - -c --sparse --posix BIGFILE | tar tvf - | awk '{ print $3, $(NF) }'
],

I.e. it generates a file with 1000 blocks of 2560*4K bytes. The blocks
are 10M from each other, that is 999 10M holes. Tar then tries to
read&seek in the file, but the seek above never finishes (or maybe
finishes after a long time).

Given this happens only on 32bit kernel, I assume some 32bit overflow.
But I am unable to see it (yet).

thanks,
