The geometry value is secsize/nsectors/ntracks/ncylinders and
is validated against the medium size.

Some users may fail for the discrepancy between 1*1*1=1 sectors
in the geometry and the medium size.

A ncylinders value of _zero_ means, it is deduced from the
medium size.  So "2048/1/1/0" would work better, but there
is a bug in vnd(4) when doing that calculation :-/
