All of the RAIDframe code is 64-bit w.r.t. sector sizes. I think
there still may be a couple of 2^32 issues with respect to stripes,
but those are slowly getting fixed as well...

I believe so.... That is, the code is there, but I've not tested it

This is the change that added the functionality:
so it should be in 4.x too.
