Booting a subhurd from a file system that resides on a sparse file
currently fails like this: ``ext2fs: pseudo-root: panic:
get_hypermetadata: disk size (115085312 bytes) too small; superblock says
we need 419430400''.

I can see in the source code (`ext2fs/hyper.c') where this is stemming
from, but I wonder why, as `ext2fs' itself is perfectly fine with
handling sparse files, when setting a translator using such a file as its
backend, for example.
