On Windows, _Py_attribute_data_to_stat() converts BY_HANDLE_FILE_INFORMATION to _Py_stat_struct, and then _pystat_fromstructstat() creates Python objects.

The file index in BY_HANDLE_FILE_INFORMATION is made of two DWORD, so yes, it's unsigned.

On Linux, stat.st_ino type is ino_t which is unsigned too.

So I created a pull request to fix the bug, even if I don't think that a filesystem produce inodes larger than 2^63-1. Not sure if it's worth it to backport the fix to Python 2.7, 3.5 and 3.6?
