The value we get from the low byte of the ATA_ID_SECTOR_SIZE word is not not
a plain multiple, but the log of it, so fix the helper to give the correct
answer.  Without this we'll get an incorrect minimal I/O size in the block
limits VPD page for 4k sector drives.

Also change the return value of ata_id_logical_per_physical_sectors to u16
for the unlikely case of very large logical sectors.

Jeff, ping?  Without this patch the minimum I/O size for 4k drives will
be reported incorrectly, which will make paritions misaligned on modern
distros.

It's queued locally.  I'm waiting to push on the flush_dache_page() 
discussion for 2.6.33, but I'll make sure your patch gets pushed today 
one way or the other.

I'm in total agreement with the patch (feel free to add my Acked-by:).

However, the minimum I/O size should still be reported correctly.  We
don't allow min_io to be smaller than physical_block_size...

[root@10 ~]# grep . /sys/block/sdc/queue/{logical_block,physical_block,minimum_io}_size
/sys/block/sdc/queue/logical_block_size:512
/sys/block/sdc/queue/physical_block_size:4096
/sys/block/sdc/queue/minimum_io_size:4096

Indeed, I only verified it using sg_inq, not the sysfs files.
