[SuSE 8.2 x86 linux 2.4.24, Mylex eXtremeraid 2000(dac960) RAID 5,
Every time I start drbd I get: 

   BLKSSZGET: Invalid argument
   datadisk: warning: could not get sector size of /dev/rd/c0d0p5, assuming 512

for each drbd device.  Is there something wrong with my raid driver that
isn't kernel block device api compliant?  [DAC960 driver version 2.4.11,
11 October 2001]

Should I specify sector size somehow in drbd.conf?  It works ok, but
errors and warnings like this on my production server make me uneasy...
