These aren't necessarily the same block numbers that were used when the
filesystem was created.

You can use scan_ffs to search for backup superblocks. scan_ffs just
uses a heuristic and doesn't handle wedges, so you may get some erroneous
matches and error messages too. But you should also find some sane
copies if there are any left.
