FILO trunk can't boot from hdb, with or without my patch. Has anyone ever been able to boot a kernel from a slave device?
No, that's the same behaviour I've seen. Afaik, filo can only boot from the 'first' device.
In blockdev.c unsigned long is used for the sector, this will overflow when a kernel is beyond 2TB on a drive. The IDE driver users sector_t which is typedef:ed to uint64_t or unsigned long long. Maybe GRUB2 will be here before this becomes a problem.
Yeah. Grub2 support for LB would be awesome. Do we know yet if there are any takers for the GSOC projects?
