file size limits?

Does anyone here know about file size limits under different filesystems
in Linux? I'm finding references to a 2GB file limit in e2fs, but also
mention that it is "fixed" with glibc 2.1.2 and a "kernel patch." This
info was 1999, so I'm wondering if that kernel patch is part of the
standard kernels now. What is the file size limit now?

What other FS is stable under Linux that would allow me >2GB file size?
