As far as i can tell the block size conversion is not needed for uefi sanboot
and it breaks when trying to sanboot a windows install. If there is some other
edge case that requires the conversion code, I can try a different approach.
Another option would be to attempt to detect the GPT as well and bail out of
the block size remapping if we have a GPT. Before doing that it seems valuable
to have a test case that actually requires this remapping.
