However I can't find anything about the large option in man pages for mount, mount_msdosfs or fstab.

Would this be suitable text to go in the -o options section of mount_msdosfs(8)?

    Mount a filesystem larger than 128gb

WARNING: This uses at least 32 bytes of kernel memory (which is not
reclaimed until the FS is unmounted) for each file on disk to map
between the 32-bit inode numbers used by VFS and the 64-bit
pseudo-inode numbers used internally by msdosfs. This is only
safe to use in certain controlled situations (e.g. read-only FS
with less than 1 million files).
Since the mappings do not persist across unmounts (or reboots), these
filesystems are not suitable for exporting through NFS, or any other
application that requires fixed inode numbers.

please do sent-pr with that.

it is missing important part of manual.
