a) the only problematic disks have a 4K sectors. your fix doesn't work
with them.

b) these disks don't exist, as there is currently no USB stack that
supports 4K sectors

I don't mind if you work on an unstable branch, or on your own local
copy of the freedos kernel.

however generating AGAIN an unstable kernel 2041 is a real bad idea.

and tagging current state (after the questionable 1705) '2041' without
further discussion is shit.
