Yes, that works properly. I should have paid more attention to the
comment. So step 1 should look like:

1. Make the following changes in "firmware/export/config-ipodvideo.h"

/* define this if the hard drive uses large physical
sectors (ATA-7 feature) */ /* and doesn't handle them in
the drive firmware */
/* MAX_PHYS_SECTOR_SIZE 1024 */
#define HAVE_LBA48

Thanks Jens!
