Please open a ticket that an anyboot image with block size 1024 doesn't work on 
your hardware. According to your syslog the block size is correctly determined 
as 2048, which seems to point to an IOCache or DMAResource issue. I tried to 
emulate the problem in qemu (also introducing dummy errors), but failed to 
cause any unaligned I/O operations to get to the driver's do_io() callback, 
which suggests that IOCache/DMAResource are doing their job just fine. You 
could also try to disable use of the IOCache (use IOSchedulerSimple instead) 
[1] and see, if that changes anything.

CU, Ingo
