Not me.
Logic is to prevent some bugs and actually my comment "I don't believe it
ever is." is totally wrong.

ide_init_queue() is called for all drives on hwif.

ie. failure scenario:
1st drive 48-bit: !rqsize -> max_sectors = 256, rqsize = 65536
2nd drive 28-bit: rqsize -> max_sectors = 65536 -> doh!

so "< max_sectors" is really needed.

It can look a bit saner:

if (!hwif->rqsize)
hwif->rqsize = hwif->addressing ? 65536 : 256;
if (hwif->rqsize < max_sectors)
max_sectors = hwif->rqsize;
blk_queue_max_sectors(q, max_sectors);

Yep.

Looks good.
Now test/review it for some time, we don't want any bugs to slip in.
