Questionable. We still need the BIOS geometry for, say, fdisk, and
fdisk will retrieve the geometry recorded in the label.

Maybe the disklabel should display a sectors per unit in the label,
rather than always computing it based on the geometry? That ought to
be an easy change; I'll do that instead and get back to you.
