Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that 
curiosity killed the cat, I say only that the cat died nobly.

When creating a cgd on a dk that sits on top of a 4k-sectors-hard-disk,
cgd reports a virtual geometry of 512 bytes/sector instead.

Currently I don't even get a working disklabel on the disk, but
even if I would, it probably wouldn't work.
Buy 4k-sectors-hard-disk, use gpt to add a cgd,
try to configure it.
