Currently I only have plans to implement filesystem block size less than
page cache size. The 2.5 kernel may bring along a page cache size larger
than the page size. The combination of the two is how we get to the larger
sizes, the xfs code itself supports 64K, it is the interface with the
Linux page cache where we only implemented the one case of page size and
block size being equal.
