Olaf, I announced the change! You did not respond! Please tell me how
long do I have to wait for a response? A week? Two weeks? Six months?
Since you insist on not being a developer, I attached a special class2.c
file which is configured to use the old geometry. Replace the
drivers\storage\class\class2\class2.c file with the attached one and
build ReactOS and you are using the old geometry again.

It got none and i cant stop thinking its simply because most of devs will even know its there. Its a pity that this does not extend to all of us:/
Please do not compare my tiny patch with the CMake changes.

I am not feeling offended at all.
