Subject[PATCH] hfsplus: Refuse to mount volumes larger than 2TB
As found in <>, hfsplus is using type u32
rather than sector_t for some sector number calculations.

In particular, hfsplus_get_block() does:

u32 ablock, dblock, mask;
map_bh(bh_result, sb, (dblock << HFSPLUS_SB(sb).fs_shift) + HFSPLUS_SB(sb).blockoffset + (iblock & mask));

I am not confident that I can find and fix all cases where a sector
number may be truncated. For now, avoid data loss by refusing to mount
HFS+ volumes with more than 2^32 sectors (2TB).

Quantity is no substitute for quality, but it's the only one we've got.
