Since bios only can handle 1024 cylinder in normal,
so you have to decide translation method. But CHS
access method is only needed by bios to boot OpenBSD.
So, I made quick fix for this, just loosened cylinder's
maximum limit in option. And send-buged...
But, I fogot to declare 'off' at PRT_make.
To use that patch in PR number 947 add 'off_t off;'
before you make.
