Are any of the rest of you having problems with using disks with
sectors sizes != DEV_BSIZE? (Actually, what i'd like to do is use a
disk with sector size == DEV_BSIZE, but with a disklabel sector size
of something larger... anyway...)
There is some magneto optical disk with disk sectors other than
512bytes. I doesn't try yet using it with NetBSD because I heard that
sector other than 512 bytes would cause problem, but if I can use it,
it would be nice because the media with 2048bytes/sec is cheaper than
512bytes/sec media when comparing per bit prices.
