Logical block size has type unsigned short. That means that it can be at
most 32768. However, there are architectures that can run with 64k pages
(for example arm64) and on these architectures, it may be possible to
create block devices with 64k block size.

For exmaple (run this on an architecture with 64k pages):
# modprobe brd rd_size=1048576
# dmsetup create cache --table "0 `blockdev --getsize /dev/ram0` writecache s /dev/ram0 /dev/ram1 65536 0"
# mkfs.ext4 -b 65536 /dev/mapper/cache
# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/cache /mnt/test

Mount will fail with this error because it tries to read the superblock using 2-sector
access:
  device-mapper: writecache: I/O is not aligned, sector 2, size 1024, block size 65536
  EXT4-fs (dm-0): unable to read superblock

This patch changes the logical block size from unsigned short to unsigned
int to avoid the overflow.

Looks fine.

The patch looks fine, and other drivers(loop, nbd, virtio_blk, ...) allow
user to pass customized logical block size, and the passed size can be > 32k.
