Description of problem:
Ran into a problem today when running df against a 5TB nfs filesystem

[test@host1]$ df -k .
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
                     1231028224 -9223372036649330832 1436473200 
101% /tmpmnt/bigfs

Even though the filesystem reports incorrectly at 101% full, it is 
actually around 75% full and you can still write to the filesystem 
from the host that is reporting incorrectly.  I've tested this 
filesystem on both Solaris 8 and RHEL 3 x86_64 and both report 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.cd to an nfs filesystem that is (probably) larger than 2TB
2.type df -k .
