Subject[PATCH 3.18 14/16] pnfs/blocklayout: require 64-bit sector_t
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>

commit 8a9d6e964d318533ba3d2901ce153ba317c99a89 upstream.

The blocklayout code does not compile cleanly for a 32-bit sector_t,
and also has no reliable checks for devices sizes, which makes it
unsafe to use with a kernel that doesn't support large block devices.
