	ld (on twe or iop) doesn't support DIOCKLABEL.

	For that matter, a bunch of other drivers don't support it
	either (e.g, vnd); only wd and sd do at the moment, but
	of all of those that don't support it, ld is most important
	"disk" to fix.

	Use dkctl(8) or a custom program to set DIOCKLABEL on an ld
	disk.  notice that the kernel doesn't cache the label.

	Ask friendly kernel hacker (Hi Jason! :) to do it for you.
