Well, I finally tried to create a large partition using disklabel and it did
not work. It seems the partition offset and size are stored as 32-bit values.
disklabel -r ld1 says:
h: 915671348 60870348 4.2BSD 2048 16384 0 # (Cyl. 3789*-60786*)
i: 199043072 976541696 4.2BSD 4096 32768 0 # (Cyl. 60786*-73176*)
Partition i size should be 0x020bdd2800, but it is truncated to 0x000bdd2800.
