Hi Satya,

Are you sure that the block layer core splits bios at logical block
boundaries? Commit 9cc5169cd478 ("block: Improve physical block
alignment of split bios") should have changed the behavior from
splitting at logical block boundaries into splitting at physical block
boundaries. Without having looked at this patch series, can the same
effect be achieved by reporting the crypto data unit size as the
physical block size?

Thanks,

Bart.
