	config does not accept the following line:
	config          netbsd  root on sd0a type ffs dumps on sd0b
	It gives the message:
	ECONAHJA:152: "ffs" is not a configured file system
	but I do have:
	file-system     FFS
	earlier in the config file
	run config on configuration file which specifies the type of
	the root file system
	Unknown, but some observations:
	The error message comes from 'setfstype()' and is caused by
	'ht_lookup()' returning NULL.
	fsopttab has the filesystem names in uppercase as keys and the
	filesystem names in lower case as values.
	The root fstype specifier is in lowercase and does not match
	the key (which is in uppercase)
