The correct commit message would have been:

   Don't allow attachment of disks which we couldn't possibly do I/O from.

The problem is that there is a fixed upper limit for the I/O transfer
sizes we support (this should be fixed) and if the sectorsize is
larger, we're hosed.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
