Subject[25/98] partitions: read whole sector with EFI GPT header
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Karel Zak <kzak@redhat.com>

commit 87038c2d5bda2418fda8b1456a0ae81cc3ff5bd8 upstream.

The size of EFI GPT header is not static, but whole sector is
allocated for the header. The HeaderSize field must be greater
than 92 (= sizeof(struct gpt_header) and must be less than or
equal to the logical block size.

It means we have to read whole sector with the header, because the
header crc32 checksum is calculated according to HeaderSize.

For more details see UEFI standard (version 2.3, May 2009):
- 5.3.1 GUID Format overview, page 93
- Table 13. GUID Partition Table Header, page 96
