100T seems to work for light use.

I can create the filesystem, mount it, write files and directories and
read them back, and fsck doesn't report any problems.

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1        99T  129M   94T   1% /sysroot

Linux (none) 3.1.0-0.rc6.git0.3.fc16.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Sep 16 12:26:22 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


qcow2 is very usable as a method for testing at this size.
