Is that the filesystem blocksize or a raid parameter?

The standalone filesystem code uses a stupid number of buffers in
order to open a file - as I found out trying to get the boot1 code
to read boot2 out of filesystem (rather than from a block list).

Anyone fancy rototilling the sa fs code so that it only uses sector
sized temporary buffers?
