With system after a make world from current (of Fri 18th Feb),
While doing a:
it blew up with
disklabel -w -r -B -b /usr/mdec/fdboot -s /usr/mdec/bootfd fd0 fd1440
newfs -b 4096 -c 80 -f 512 -i 8192 -m 0 -o space rfd0 fd1440
Warning: calculated sectors per cylinder (4096) disagrees with disk label (36)
Newfs now ignores the disklabel and uses defaults of 1 track/cyl and 4096
sectors/track. You can override by giving explicit arguments.
However, the way the changes have been made strikes me as somewhat kludgy.
Would it be possible for newfs to do the following:
(1) Check /etc/disktab for info on the partition. Use these
parameters if available.
(Put the 4096/1 stuff in here.)
(2) If /etc/disktab has no info, look at the disklabel.
Pay attention to these parameters if available.
(3) If neither (1), nor (2), use the hard-coded defaults
