bin/45166: UFS2 / FFSv2 confusion
>Synopsis: UFS2 / FFSv2 confusion

>Originator: Havard Eidnes
>Release: NetBSD 5.1
I Try, Inc.
System: NetBSD smistad.uninett.no 5.1 NetBSD 5.1 (MAANEN) #12: Wed Dec 22
11:42:27 CET 2010
Our mount(8) man page says under description of the
relatively recently added "log" feature/option:
(FFS only with UFS2 superblock layout)
However, the newfs(8) man page does not mention the
UFS2 text string, under description of the "-O" option
the text says
0 4.3BSD; This option is primarily used to build
root file systems that can be understood by older
1 FFSv1; normal fast-filesystem (default).
2 FFSv2; enhanced fast-filesystem (suited for more
than 1 Terabyte capacity, access control lists).
Someone muttered that the UFS2 / FFSv2 confusion is something
we have imported from elsewhere. However, we should not
contribute to it, and should provide for a little more smooth
sailing when users want to enable the "log" feature.
Inspect our mount(8) and newfs(8) man pages.
No textual suggestion provided here.
