Subject[patch 05/54] md: Avoid overflow in raid0 calculation with large components.
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------

From: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>

If a raid0 has a component device larger than 4TB, and is accessed on
a 32bit machines, then as 'chunk' is unsigned lock,
chunk << chunksize_bits
can overflow (this can be as high as the size of the device in KB).
chunk itself will not overflow (without triggering a BUG).

So change 'chunk' to be 'sector_t, and get rid of the 'BUG' as it becomes
impossible to hit.
