Dear Joanne.

Done to, in the sense of written to: Yes. I completely agree. But that 
is for amiga-fdisk and parted. And for partitioning tools on native OS.

Well, my use case was simple:

I had this 2 TB disk and I choose to share it as a backup disk for Linux 
*and* AmigaOS 4.x on that Sam440ep I still have next to me desk here.

As AmigaOS up to my knowledge does not have GPT support and MBR with 2 
TB disk is asking for even more trouble and is not supported in any 
sensible partitioning tool on AmigaOS and I choose to use Media Toolbox, 
I went with RDB as I thought it is nicely supported in Linux, which it 
is, apart from the overflowing issue.

So I did it this way.

Sure, if the Linux kernel can´t handle it due to missing CONFIG_LBDAF or 
so… by all means *bail* out. Without even a kernel option to parse this 
anyway. No overflowing. Period. That is what I wrote from the beginning.

I completely agree.

Heh, I remembered my shoes back then. And I informed myself about what I 
was doing.

And well, yes… I wanted to see how far I can get away with it :)

Yes.

Print a warning and be done with it in the RDB parser code.

Put a big fat warning into amiga-fdisk and parted!

Thanks,
Martin
