Filesystem too large...

I need to setup a 3.27TB ext3 filesystem using -i 1024 and -b 1024.

When I try to format this partition I get the "Filesystem too large." error. Are there any plans to update these limits? are there any patches already available that I can try out? Or am I just SOL here?

(vzbu2 ~)# fdisk -l /dev/etherd/e1.1

Disk /dev/etherd/e1.1: 3600.7 GB, 3600795892224 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 437771 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Disk /dev/etherd/e1.1 doesn't contain a valid partition table
