Thanks for the reminder; I have tested and updated
MAKEDEV, gpt.8 and fdisk.8 with this info.
I was aware of the GPT limit, from earlier discussion on our lists,
but didn't know that MBR limit is different.
I guess the old limit of 31 slices is plenty for most uses, but 127 is excellent;
a high number can also be relevant for compatibility
with other systems for shared use of disk.
