I got 2 really old but still working scsi-disks which are
hardsectored to 1k/sec. I tried to use them unter netbsd-current (on
an alpha multia, if that matters), but w/o much success: the beasts
are recognized by the autoconfig routines, I can put a label on and
newfs(8) with -S 1024 -s <half the blocks specified in disklabel or
so> and the partition can be fsck(8)ed.
but: mount(8) complains with "bad superblock" or some such.

is there some way to make this disks really usable for netbsd? I'm
willing to do some kernel-hacking, if someone would tell me where to
