I checked the ATA/ATAPI specification and it seems it may be possible to find real HW sector size from word 106 of IDENTIFY DEVICE command. Would it be possible to check this and propagate this information to user-space via smartctl? It will allow semi-automatic creation of properly aligned partitions on devices like WD6400AARS.
