[GEDI] [PATCH v3] block/gluster: correctly set max_pdiscard

On 64-bit platforms, assigning SIZE_MAX to the int64_t max_pdiscard
results in a negative value, and the following assertion would trigger
down the line (it's not the same max_pdiscard, but computed from the
other one):
qemu-system-x86_64: ../block/io.c:3166: bdrv_co_pdiscard: Assertion
`max_pdiscard >= bs->bl.request_alignment' failed.

On 32-bit platforms, it's fine to keep using SIZE_MAX.

The assertion in qemu_gluster_co_pdiscard() is checking that the value
of 'bytes' can safely be passed to glfs_discard_async(), which takes a
size_t for the argument in question, so it is kept as is. And since
max_pdiscard is still <= SIZE_MAX, relying on max_pdiscard is still

Fixes: 0c8022876f ("block: use int64_t instead of int in driver discard handlers")

v2 -> v3:
    * Keep assertion in qemu_gluster_co_pdiscard() as is.
    * Improve commit message.

v1 -> v2:
    * Use an expression that works for both 64-bit and 32-bit platforms.
