Now that large block sizes can be used without risking data loss (pending full testing of #1866032 implementation code), all user messages that currently report block counts/addresses should report sectors instead. Probe the input/output device as appropriate and use that sector size, or assume 512 bytes if probing fails.

    Should be all set - dc3dd now probes device sector size and reports all errors / progress totals using sector counts.
    Also updates count/seek/skip options to take sector counts.

    Will close once I can upload the code.

    Please check with the DCFL I&E team before changing the display. They specifically requested block numbers in the past.

    They requested the change, so it should be OK.
