|  Sorry, I miss remembered. The limit for IDE is 128k, not 64 (and much highter
|  with the extended read/write commands).

  So basically we want either

  (a) a (much?) larger MAXPHYS

  (b) no MAXPHYS at all and let the low level driver deal with
      segmenting large requests if necessary

  Remind me again why MAXPHYS is needed at all, is it just for histerical
reasons and no one ever bothered to remove that limitation?
