Bug#567219: corrupt read of files from CDROM
A bug causing read of kfreebsd.gz from Debian GNU/kFreeBSD CDROM to be
corrupted has just been fixed in GRUB Bazaar (rev 2143).
Vladimir Serbinenko explains:
01:15 < nyu> phcoder: you fixed the bug in debian gnu/kfreebsd mini.iso ?
01:15 < nyu> what was it?
01:16 < phcoder> nyu: wrong calculation of offsets when reading a non-cacheable last sector. We didn't really fix it last time, just the bug appears only
when size of the image isn't 4KiB aligned, so with probability 1/2
