Newfs options that wouldn't do the person asking the question any good,
because they obviously do not overcome the limitation that the kernel
cannot handle disk devices with blocksizes other than 512 bytes.

In other words, once again you wanted to seem like some kind of competent,
helpful individual (you are obviously neither) and wasted quite a bit of
several people's time by giving a seemingly-authoritative, unqualified
answer that was, in fact, just plain wrong.

Would you give it a break, please?
