    There is a patch to allow 64-bit block devices - Ben LaHaise or Jens Axbow
    put it out about 2 months ago. I believe it fixes the SCSI midlayer,
    and a limited number of drivers. This is probably a good starting point
    (you may need to update the particular SCSI driver you are using).

    Cheers, Andreas
