Dave, Amir, Chris, many thanks for the info you've filled in -
and absolutely no need to run any scan on your fleet for this,
I think we can be confident that even if fb had some 15-year-old tool
in use on its fleet of 2GB-file filesystems, it would not be the one
to insist on a kernel revert of 64-bit tmpfs inos.

The picture looks clear now: while ChrisD does need to hold on to his
config option and inode32/inode64 mount option patch, it is much better
left out of the kernel until (very unlikely) proved necessary.
