        src/sbin/newfs_msdos: newfs_msdos.c

Log Message:
Do not erroneously leave a truncated 16-bit sector
count on "large" (>=32MB) file systems when fetching the geometry from
the medium.  This confuses some software (which is to say Windows)
when a device newfs(8)ed under NetBSD is transported to another
system.  (Note: The rest of the code uses 'bsec', and DTRT for smaller
file systems.)
