FILO trunk can't boot from hdb, with or without my patch. Has anyone
ever been able to boot a kernel from a slave device?

In blockdev.c unsigned long is used for the sector, this will
overflow when a kernel is beyond 2TB on a drive. The IDE driver
users sector_t which is typedef:ed to uint64_t or unsigned long long.
Maybe GRUB2 will be here before this becomes a problem.
