[Nbd] [PATCH] nbd: set the max segments to USHRT_MAX

I lack the basic understanding of what segments mean, so we were being
limited to 512kib requests even with higher max_sectors sizes set.
Setting the maximum number of segments to unlimited allows us to
actually have arbitrarily large IO's go through NBD.
