No. The point is that filesystems should not make assumptions about
hardware block size (except it being power of 2 I believe). If there
was code in block layer to provide broken FS's compatibility and that
code has been removed, then we must fix the FS. Who's HFS maintainer ?

They always worked fine for me.
