[U-Boot] Question regarding "Problems with CONFIG_SYS_64BIT_LBA" in disk/part_efi.c

In the current source tree, in disk/part_efi.c , we see:

 * Problems with CONFIG_SYS_64BIT_LBA:
 * struct disk_partition.start in include/part.h is sized as ulong.
 * When CONFIG_SYS_64BIT_LBA is activated, lbaint_t changes from ulong
to uint64_t.
 * For now, it is cast back to ulong at assignment.
 * This limits the maximum size of addressable storage to < 2 Terra Bytes

Is this last comment correct, that there is indeed a maximum size of
addressable storage less that 2TB?

Or is this an old comment that was never removed?
