pagebuf can now (theoretically) take a configurable sector size.
This is effectively no visible change to users though - there is
still no way to change the sector size in XFS.  This'll also let
me go and do a bit of work on the tools (several header macros I
need now exist), and then this can be revisited later.

The following file(s) were checked into:

Modid:  2.4.x-xfs:slinx:132942a
linux/fs/xfs/xfs_sb.h - 1.54
        - Add macros for doing sect to BB conversions, FSB to sect conversions,

linux/fs/xfs/xfs_vfsops.c - 1.399
        - Set the device sector size based on the (existing) superblock field
          value (currently this is always 512), rather than hardcoding the
          value to 512.

linux/fs/xfs/xfs_mount.h - 1.163
        - Squeeze in an 8 byte sectbb field (no change to xfs_mount_t size),
          similar semantics to blkbb log field (except for sector size, not
          block size).

linux/fs/xfs/xfs_mount.c - 1.312
        - Read a sector from the end of the device when checking log/data
          device sizes, not a BB.  Currently only 512 byte sectors exist,
          so no real change here.  Move mount type initialisation earlier
          on in the piece.

linux/fs/xfs/xfs_alloc_btree.h - 1.22
        - Add some macros relating to sector sizes, update some comments.

linux/fs/xfs/linux/xfs_super.h - 1.32
linux/fs/xfs/linux/xfs_super.c - 1.229
        - When initialising a new pagebuf target, allow a sector size to be
          passed in.

linux/fs/xfs/pagebuf/page_buf.c - 1.76
linux/fs/xfs/pagebuf/page_buf.h - 1.45
        - Remove the hardcoded sector size of 512 bytes, make it variable.
