SubjectLibATA support for long sectors
Date
ATA-8 defines two different methods for increasing the length of
sectors. Long Physical Sectors increase the native sector size
of the disc while pretending to the OS that sectors are still 512 bytes.
Long Logical Sectors increase the length of the reported sector. This
patch series adds support for both. It does not add support for
non-power-of-2 sector sizes as they have not been fully specified yet.
