Why aren't large files >2GB supported?

They are, that's just not implemented for tmpfs. I get the same when querying tmpfs on other distros, but big files can be created just fine.

edit: See glibc git:

The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

The way I read that, it looks like tmpfs falls under the default. Looks like I'll need to hammer at it from a different angle. Thanks.
