Partman rounds long numbers by truncating them because the busybox
arithmetic is limited (on i386) to 32 bits so partman needs to use
string operations for its arithmetic.

But anyway, this is only estimated value and even if it was correctly
rounded the users would not be advised to use sizes very close to it.
