I can't help but can ask another question. A while back Sebastian tested 
with a >2G SD card with dosfs discussed here extensively:

The bug you refer too ( 
says something about limiting RTEMS to devices <=2G. But it also says it 
relates to *internal* RTEMS code and not the external standard 
interface. Guess I don't understand this distinction and how this bug 
affects the user.

P/s: I can tell you that the machine/types.h file is a system file that 
is installed (for me) at 
/opt/rtems-4.9/arm-rtems4.9/include/machine/types.h as part of the 
toolchain install and is not directly in the rtems source tree.
