There shouldn't be any need for additional DM overrides for max_sectors.

DM will stack the limits for all underlying devices each table reload
(via dm_calculate_queue_limits).  And max_sectors is properly stacked in
the block layer's bdev_stack_limits (called by dm_set_device_limits).

So is something resetting max_sectors with sysfs?  multipathd?
