Default Bug#582281: Partition starting sector and size incorrect for reserved CMS minidisk on FBA DASD with blocksize > 512 using DIAG driver

Dear IBM Linux Kernel development team,

This is an official bug report.

See Debian bug report number 582281


for details. From my research it appears that this bug was introduced
between Linux kernel version and 2.6.31. That is when
blocksize in fs/partitions/ibm.c, function ibm_partition, was changed

blocksize = bdev_hardsect_size(bdev)


blocksize = bdev_logical_block_size(bdev)

This apparently solved one problem but caused another one. A link to
a patch which fixes the problem is present in the Debian bug log.
Please copy 582281@bugs.debian.org on correspondence.

Respectfully submitted,
Stephen Powell
