Peter, do you mean "BIOS" in the broader sense, including UEFI firmware 
and syslinux.efi (as the OP is asking about)?

Do you mean that *syslinux.efi* does not support (yet) "4k" devices?

Quote from http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?46700#comment22 :
Well, there is apparently some bug (or at least incorrect assumption) 
on GRUB side. Pity, it is the first known case of BIOS supporting 4Kn
