The following reply was made to PR bin/44496; it has been noted by GNATS.

From: "David A. Holland" <>
Subject: PR/44496 CVS commit: src/sbin/disklabel
Date: Sat, 12 Feb 2011 22:23:02 +0000

 Module Name:   src
 Committed By:  dholland
 Date:          Sat Feb 12 22:23:02 UTC 2011
 Modified Files:
        src/sbin/disklabel: Makefile
 Log Message:
 Disable COMPAT_386BSD_MBRPART. The code is still here if anyone needs it
 for some reason. (But I have no idea why that would be -- if you have one
 of these really ancient partitions and you're about to run disklabel, you
 can easily run fdisk first and change the partition type to NetBSD.)
 As it stands, the code will munch FreeBSD installs under some
 circumstances, which is really not acceptable behavior.
 The code, along with the kernel support that's been disabled by
 default for several years, and some related but less dangerous code in
 sysinst, should prboably be removed entirely after -6 is branched.
 Discussed on tech-kern and tech-userlevel; closes PR 44496.
 This is also almost certainly the cause of PR 42521 and PR 38841.
