Since the block number in the kernel buf struct is still a 32 bit
integer (in FreeBSD release 4.9 at least),  I would guess that
FreeBSD can handle at most a Terrabyte (2^40 bytes) or two (if the
block number is unsigned) on a single hard disk.

If you try to make a single file system that large, you may find
that things like fsck don't scale very well.
