Silly me; I've spent so much time on this filesystem, I couldn't keep up to
date with -current sources since sometime December.  Oh well, at least it
was worth the experience.  (I still like my own coding style better!)

Now that I'm current as of March-something, any ideas why mount_msdos would
completely lock up my system when mounting a floppy disk?  Come to think of
it, the system also locked up when I had to shells operating on the same
directory at once; in the past when there was a deadlock, only the shells
stopped and I could still close X.

And why does the screen go blank during the /netbsd boot?
