I have several CDs here with old-style UFS filesystems on them rather
than ISO9660. When I try and mount them directly (either partition,
specifically using mount_ffs), it fails with a standard "incorrect super
block" error. If I create diskimages of them and mount those using vnd,
it works and I can correctly see and access data.
I am running -current from late August.

disklabel: boot block size 0
disklabel: super block size 0
disklabel: partition a: partition extends past end of unit
disklabel: partitions a and d overlap
disklabel: partition d: partition extends past end of unit
What else should I try? I'm at a loss as to why this is happening.
