Subject[PATCH] brd: fix overflow in __brd_direct_access
The code in __brd_direct_access multiplies the pgoff variable by page size
and divides it by 512. It can cause overflow on 32-bit architectures. The
overflow happens if we create ramdisk larger than 4G and use it as a
sparse device.

This patch replaces multiplication and division with multiplication by the
number of sectors per page.
