I think you should choose whether you're going to use 'bs > ps' or LBS
and stick to it.  They're both pretty inscrutable and using both
interchanagbly is worse.

But I think filesystems which use buffer_heads should be fine to support
bs > ps.  The problems with the buffer cache are really when you try to
support small block sizes and large folio sizes (eg arrays of bhs on
the stack).  Supporting bs == folio_size shouldn't be a problem.
