[dm-devel] [PATCH v2] block: do not artificially constrain max_sectors for stacking drivers

blk_set_stacking_limits() is intended to allow stacking drivers to build
up the limits of the stacked device based on the underlying devices'
limits.  But in the case of 'max_sectors' the default of
BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS (1024) doesn't allow the stacking driver to inherit
a max_sectors larger than 1024.

It is now clear that this artificial limit is getting in the way so
change blk_set_stacking_limits's max_sectors to UINT_MAX (which allows
stacking drivers like dm-multipath to inherit 'max_sectors' from the
underlying paths).

blk_limits_max_hw_sectors() must allow stacking drivers to not have
max_sectors set to BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS as a side-effect.  Move that
historic constraint to blk_queue_max_hw_sectors().
