Description of problem:
The kernel misreports the capacity of large scsi devices during boot
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Attach large scsi device
3.Examine dmesg output
Actual Results: A large SCSI array is reported like this:
SCSI device sde: 1367186688 512-byte hdwr sectors (-399511 MB)
Presumably an overflow of some sort in the kernel.
Expected Results: SCSI device sde: 1367186688 512-byte hdwr sectors
or something similar.
Linux is currently limited to 1Tb device size..... We're working on improving
that but it will take time.
