I just checked some old code.  It was indeed Maxtor:

//  DetermineGeometry - Get a solid reading on drive geometry.
//  ----------------------------------------------------------
//
//    We compute logical CHS if we're in LBA mode and we also
//    work out the problem with some Maxtor drives that have the

Cheers,
