The kernel keeps an in core copy of the disklabel. Sometimes this in
core copy and the on disk data get out of sync. "disklabel -r sd1" reads
the disklabel from the disk while "disklabel sd1" displays only the in
core copy. If you wane make sure that there is the correct label on the
disk you can rewrite it using the cammands in the third line.
