Want zvols to return volblocksize when queried for physical block size
What the title says.

I'm not sure this is a good idea. If you need to adjust the blocksize reported, change the blocksize of your COMSTAR LU - it's what it's there for.
Default is 512 bytes because most legacy clients expect 512 byte sectors; newer initiators will also support 4K (as the new drives). I am not sure what the behavior of an arbitrary initiator will be once you deviate from 512 or 4096. Things may very well fall apart.
