Wojtek, please *stop* spewing incorrect information onto the NetBSD
mailing lists. The filesystem block and fragment size don't have anything
to do with the underlying physical or logical blocksize of the disk you put
the filesystem on.
With the exception of CD-ROM devices, unfortunately, NetBSD can't cope with
disk devices that have a blocksize other than 512 bytes.
