Absolutely seconded.

Plus this is only one of the proposals for dealing with IDE native sizes
moving through the process. The other one is in libata with the gendisk
proposal for alt size instead of your set_capacity callback. The last
thing we want is two separate mechanisms for this, so trying to push
anything upstream before we have agreement on direction is premature ...
trying to send a feature as a bug fix is doubly so.
