Actually, CONFIG_LBD is not necessary on IA-64.

include/linux/types.h:

 * The type used for indexing onto a disc or disc partition.
 * If required, asm/types.h can override it and define
 * HAVE_SECTOR_T
 */
#ifndef HAVE_SECTOR_T
typedef unsigned long sector_t;
#endif

Since HAVE_SECTOR_T isn't ever defined by IA-64, this does the right
thing.
