Title: make sure harddrives with 4KiB sectors are handled correctly

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: John Lombardo (tempusfugit)

Description:
More and more harddrives with 4KiB physical sectors are showing up in
the wild. Partitioned incorrectly starting on the traditional sector 63
these drives exhibit very poor performance. The linux partition
toolchain is being updated to handle these drives correctly, make sure
to ship up-to-date versions of the tools in question and teach yast to
make the best of it.
A complete overview of the issue and best practices can be found in
this wiki article by kernel hacker Tejun Heo:
