I've split the FFS mount code out from mount(8). It's now in a
seperate program, mount_ffs(8) (which is linked to mount_ufs for
BE SURE TO INSTALL A mount_ffs(8) BINARY BEFORE OR AT THE TIME WHEN
YOU INSTALL A NEW mount(8) BINARY, OR YOU WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO
MOUNT YOUR FILE SYSTEMS ON REBOOT.
sorry for screaming, i'm just hoping that doing so now will keep
people from asking questions about it later. 8-)
from now on, the correct way to refer to "FFS" file systems in
/etc/fstab is by the "ffs" file system type, rather than the "ufs"
file system type. because of the link mentioned above, using "ufs"
will continue to work.
"ffs" should also be used for other programs which use file system
type names (e.g. find, df, mount when printing fs info, etc.), but not
all of the changes to make things work like that are done yet, so in
the mean time, i advise that you use _both_ "ufs" and "ffs" in the
mean time, e.g. by using constructs like:
mount -t ufs,ffs
find ... -type ufs -o -type ffs
df -t ufs,ffs
