Subject: [PATCH] e2fsprogs: play with 8TB to 16TB fs's better

Hello,

Currently in order to mkfs a >8TB fs with 4k blocks you have to do -F, which is
kind of dumb since you can go to 16TB-4k.  This patch removes that one check
that won't let you go above 8TB and fixes getsize so that if you have a 16TB fs
instead of complaining that the device is too big just -1 from the size and go
ahead on business as usual.  Tested this with my box and it works fine (yay
having >16tb to play with).  Thank you,

Josef
