This is only a problem in the interactive part of disklabel(8)
(as shown by the fact that jakllsch's patch is for interact.c). It's not a
problem with the disklabel itself (which was dsl's reason for closing).
If you hand-edit a disklabel and restore with disklabel -R it works fine.
I'd be tempted to use daddr_t throughout and then check against UINT32_MAX
when coming to write out the label (or at various other times when a
warning would be appropriate).
