Subject[PATCH 1/3] md: align superblock writes to physical blocks
Date
Writes of the md superblock are aligned to the logical blocks of the
containing device, but no attempt is made to align them to physical
block boundaries. This means that on a "512e" device (4k physical, 512
logical) every superblock update hits the 512-byte emulation and the
possible associated performance penalty.

Respect the physical block alignment when possible.
