I don't know, but I am curious. What was the old config for this? I've only heard of a physical address block size of 512 bytes or more, and logical block addressing of 512 bytes or multiples. It is the idea of a block device being less than 512 bytes which I am wondering about...what is this device? How is it connected, e.g., is it SATA, PCIe, M.2?

I'm trying to gen a kernel that supports 256 byte sectors. This use to be supported and I can't find it in the new 4.13.11 kernel config. Does anybody know if this is still supported? How can I enable it?

Thanks in advance...
