[PATCH] BLKGETSIZE64 broken in 2.4.18-pre1, 2.5.2-pre7

From: Eric Sandeen (sandeen@sgi.com)

BLKGETSIZE64 is supposed to return device size in bytes:

#define BLKGETSIZE64 _IOR(0x12,114,sizeof(u64)) /* return device size in
bytes (u64 *arg) */

but in drivers/block/blkpg.c, it's just returning device size/512 as a
u64 number.

This patch should apply to both kernels.
