Ok. here's the scoop:
Filesystems created with < Solaris-2.7 that do not have ACL's work fine.
If you have ACL's and you fsck under NetBSD, you'll blow your ACL's.
If you don't fsck and you mount under NetBSD, you risk corruption.
Solaris 2.7 also supports journalling. If you have turned this on and you
mount a Solaris-2.7 filesystem under netbsd (I have not tried that), you'll
lose any data that was in the transaction log, plus ACL's, plus other things
that I am not aware of.
