I wasn't aware that this already was fixed; thanks for the notice.
Should this really be worth a pullup to NetBSD-5 though? Only having
ran NetBSD/vax in SIMH so far, I didn't really need the advantages of
FFS2, although I was bitten once by an install where I selected it. It
also would be fine for me if it only was clearly documented that the
NetBSD-5/vax bootloader doesn't support booting from FFSv2 file systems.
What do others think?
