Jens Freimann - Aug. 15, 2012, 7:44 a.m.
From: Einar Lueck <elelueck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

Virtio-blk does not impose fixed block sizes for access to
backing devices. This patch introduces support for auto
lookup of the block sizes of the backing block device. This
automatic lookup needs to be enabled explicitly. Users may
do this by specifying (physical|logical)_block_size=0.
Machine types may do this for their defaults, too.
To achieve this, a new function blkconf_blocksizes is
implemented. If physical or logical block size are zero
a corresponding ioctl tries to find an appropriate value.
If this does not work, 512 is used. blkconf_blocksizes
is therefore only called w/in the virtio-blk context.
For s390-virtio, this patch configures auto lookup as
default.

I'm a bit worried about changing the default for s390, the other parts
look good.
