...I suppose I should have mentioned... the file system names are
case-insensitive, and are treated as lower-case by config(8).  These
lower-case names are used to build the list of legal file system types
which may be specified on the "config netbsd ..." line(s).  So:

file-system	ffs
 - and -
file-system	FFS

are treated exactly the same by config(8).

Note, config(8) still causes -DFFS (in this example) to be used when
building the kernel.
