hardlinks not working with inode number > 2^31

It appears that the problem is not directly related to inode number
size, but to the way they are hashed to detect the same inode numbers.

If in hashtable_find() I change the following definition:

    int key64 = (tbl->node_size > sizeof (struct ht_int32_node));


    int key64 = 1;

then the "key" is properly saved to a 64-bit value, instead of a 32-bit
value, and then it works.  This looks like an attempt to save space,
using 64 bits only when necessary. However the test seems flawed...
