Allow largefile storage in FSC

When using filesystem caches e.g. for nfs, it is especially beneficial for really large. Currently FSC cannot handle multi GB files. Please add O_LARGEFILE at the needed places. Attached patch works here, but I am not sure where there are more places or it can be done better.
