Description of problem:
On RHEL 3 x86_64 all 32bit UID's and GID's map to 65534, regardless of
filesystem type. See http://www.x86-64.org/lists/discuss/msg04027.html
for more discussion on the topic.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.21, all releases
Steps to Reproduce:
1. touch foo
2. chown 11223344 foo
3. ls -l foo
Actual Results: ls shows it's owned by nfsnobody (uid 65534)
Expected Results: The owner should change to uid 11223344.
