Extend Filesize in the attachments table for files with size > 2147483647 bytes
We use Redmine for our Projects. On the "Files" Tab we also offer complete VirtualBox images containing trial versions for our software. Naturally these files exceed 2.1 GB in size.
It was a bit tricky to get these files into Redmine but I managed it. (No, I did not upload them via web browser). Now all is perfect. I can download the images and play around with them.
Sadly, due to the "attachment" table definition in the Redmine Database been filesize of INT - which is basically a signed 32 bit integer - the displayed filesize is wrong. So the "Files" Tab always shows the wrong size.
It's not a big deal anyway, since download works. It's just a minor quirk. Maybe a BIGINT in the SQL database definition would help ...

We had a similar problem with bigger downloads. In our case, we manually wrote "-1" to the filesize field and added the real filesize manually in the description, however, it would be very nice to be able to store bigger filesizes directly in the redmine database.
