sysinst was never taught how to deal with quirks of hpcsh, since in a
typical setup you want dual-fs CF card with FAT partition that
contains hpcboot and FFS partition that contains the system.  

I guess there's very little motivation to invest any time in that now.
The machines are more than a decade old and are rather underpowered,
so the user base is tiny.
