Or we could introduce the notion of logical blocksize for each block
minor so that we can measure blocks in the same units the filesystem
uses. This would give us 16 TB while being able to stay with 32 bits
everywhere outside the block drivers themselves.

We are not that far away from being able to handle 8K blocks, so that
would bump it up to 32 TB.
