3.5" 650 MB Magneto Optical Disk support?

Hello all,

Recently I've bought a Fujitsu 3.5" 650 MB MO drive, I would like to ask
a question is that, "Is Linux support 3.5" 650 MB MO disk?".  Since 3.5"
650 MB MO disk is 2048 bytes/sector but I've read Hardware HOW-TO, it
said only 512 bytes or 1024 bytes per sector media is supported.  Thanks
advance for your kind assistance.

Raman

A patch for this was posted recently (this week I think) on
the linux-kernel mailing list.
