That thing loses size=... option. Both size= and nr_blocks= affect the
same thing (->max_blocks), but the parser keeps track of the options
it has seen and applying the parsed data to superblock checks only
whether nr_blocks= had been there. IOW, size= gets parsed, but the
result goes nowhere.

I'm not sure whether it's better to fix the patch up or redo it from
scratch - it needs to be carved up anyway and it's highly non-transparent,
so I'm probably going to replace the damn thing entirely with something
that would be easier to follow.
