Description Yoav Zach 2004-10-18 05:59:11 EDT
Description of problem:
The execution layer is not aware of the full 32 bit device numbers, 
and it discards the upper 12 bits of the minor number and 4 bits of 
the major number when doing stat calls. (Now we have 20bit minors/12 
bit majors in the 2.6 kernel)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
create a block device
 # mknod /tmp/dev b 1 1000
copy an IA-32 stat program to a IPF system and do
 #stat32 /tmp/dev  --format=%T
Actual results:

Expected results:
