Look again Jens. Adam's changes made IDE queue handling inconsistent.
hint: 2 * 127 != 255
But noticed warning deals with design of ll_rw_blk.c. ;-)
(right now max_segment_size have to be max bv->bv_len aligned)
Jens, please look at segment checking/counting code, it does it on
bv->bv_len (4kb most likely) not sector granuality...
So for not 4kb aligned max_segment_size we will get new segment...
Best fix will be to make block layer count sectors not bv->bv_len...
btw. I like Adam's patch but it was draft not to include in mainline (?).
