This looks like it could be caused by disklabel(8)'s getnum() returning
'int'. This function seems to only be used in interactive (-i) mode,
so maybe -e mode would work.
In any case, the disklabel can only hold 32-bit sector counts and offsets.
So, until 2TiB+ disks come about (IOW the next generation of disks),
we're mostly fine.
