Nope : the sb is 4096 bytes long, and is full of holes. The biggest one is 128
bytes long, at the tail. We could lower the maximum number of device in a raid
from 27 to 21 to free 3 sectors, but it won't be appreciated and would leave us
with the most fundamental problem : logging in the MD superblock would corrupt
the checksum ... :(
