Maybe I'd get about the same thing if I used newfs_ext2fs in NetBSD?
I don't really know if Linux could be made to work with UFS (BSD file system)
read-write, might be better to try on a nonboot partition.
There is still the possibility of xfs, which I see in pkgsrc and the FreeBSD
ports; xfsprogs is included in Linux Slackware. Try on a USB stick, which I
could also try with a maximally compatible ext2fs. Experiment before I use for
It seems exFAT is ruled out for open-source OSes.
