Subject: HD targets and multivolume

HD targets and multivolume

From: Frank Gevaerts <frank_at_gevaerts.be>

People seem to be experimenting with 240GB drives in most HD-based
targets these days. On some of them, the OF bootloader won't do
LBA48, so the first partition needs to be smaller than 128GB, which
means you have to have two partitions for it to be fully usable.

I think we should enable HAVE_MULTIVOLUME on all HD targets with at
least 8MB RAM. The overhead is less than 3KB, which I think is
negligible on those devices.

Comments?
