System: NetBSD 7.99.1 NetBSD 7.99.1 (GENERIC) #0: Fri Sep

Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
It seems that "installboot" can no longer update bootblocks under
NetBSD/amd64 current:

        tron@lyssa:~#installboot -v /dev/rwd0a /usr/mdec/bootxx_ffsv1
        installboot: Opening file system `/dev/rwd0a' read-write: Device busy

Martin Husemann suggested that this problem is a result of the
wedges auto-configuration changes. I'm therefore submitting this in
category "kern" rather than "amd64".

Read installboot(1) and follow the instructions for installing the bootblock.

Not known.
