A lookaside table will do it. We can do that in 64 bits easily.
In 32 bits we'd only have 8 bits for unique inodes - no more than 256
keys on a volume. With 64 bit key_t's, we get up to 40 bits to lookup in
the lookaside table - no worries :}. ftok() will have to become a
cygdaemon wrapped function though - which IIRC it isn't today.

So Chris: go ahead, but tell the cygwin ftok() maintainer when you do
this.  Oh, wait we don't have one just now. Sigh. I'll *try* to find
