What data does one need to calculate the best frag size / block size to use
for a new LFS partition? I assume the exact size of the disk, from disklabel
or whatever, but I'm not sure how to calculate the best frag size. I just
recreated the partition I use for building NetBSD as lfs, and have noticed a
good bit of speed improvement, I'm considering converting another filesystem
used for non-critical data (stuff that won't kill the machine if it gets
hosed :) to LFS, and want to try and figure out a better frag size than what
newfs_lfs does with -A. Any tips?
