This problem is triggered by MD alpha source as mentioned in the PR and    
it can be workarounded by the suggested patch without far future MI sysinst
reorganization including proper sanity checks against disk geometry values.
Ok'ed by martin.

As mentioned in the PR, the problem is caused by wrong d_nsectors and
d_secpercyl values written by Tru64 and we shouldn't calculate            
dlsize (sectors per unit) from these possibly wrong values.
