Do your patches allow for disks where the disklabel's notion of the
block size is > the actual disk block size (obviously, a power-of-two
multiple 8-) to be used correctly?

For instance, if I want to set up a FFS file system for use on a
CD-ROM, i'd want to set up the disklabel for 2k blocks and the file
system to use 2k fragments.  Could such an image be used on a
512-byte-block disk?

If you'd not considered that, could you?  (and please test it?  8-)
