I have a file system I am trying to resize via resize2fs but I get this error

resize2fs 1.41.14 (22-Dec-2010)
resize2fs: New size too large to be expressed in 32 bits

im on debian squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64

# pvs
  PV         VG      Fmt  Attr PSize  PFree
  /dev/md1   vgRAID6 lvm2 a-   18.17t 134.12g

# lvs
  LV    VG      Attr   LSize  Origin Snap%  Move Log Copy%  Convert
  data1 vgRAID6 -wi-ao 18.00t

and the cryptsetup resize worked like a charm. I ran  e2fsck before the resize which pass sucessfully.

I added 

ext4 = {
                features = has_journal,extent,huge_file,flex_bg,uninit_bg,dir_nlink,extra_isize
                auto_64-bit_support = 1 ## ADDED THIS
                inode_size = 256

to /etc/mke2fs.conf

and run resize2fs and got the same error
