It will become critical very soon. We need someone to stress-test GRUB on disks bigger than 2 TiB (either real or QEMU emulated drives), find the bugs (we know they're there) and fix them.

ext2 and ufs2 filesystems should be the top priority because they're used by GNU-based systems.

The disk I/O already supports 64-bit addressing, but some filesystems do not support 64-bit offsets. This will be critical in near future.
