A fix has been implemented upstream. See the details at 

NB, VID/PID is matched by length, so "SEAGATE ST" will match all Seagate drives with
product ID starting with "ST"
	sd-config-list = "SEAGATE ST", "physical-block-size:4096";

Both of which are inconvenient (not impossible, just inconvenient, so if that's the easiest solution, then that's what I'll do…)
