Actually there is a reason for this.  Not all open(2) calls in
dash need large file support.  For example, doing it on a shell
script or /dev/null makes no sense.  Only those dealing with user
files (redirections) need large file support.

So that's we need to differentiate between open(2) calls on user
files as opposed to those for dash itself.

Cheers,
