    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.
