I'm trying to sanitise some of the sysinst code.
In partictular using common code for all the disk partitioning (instead
of slightly different copies of a big routine in each port).

The 'prep' port has me slightly stumped though.

The code seems to look for an mbr disklabel, then:
- fails to set C up at all
- sets D to be the whole disk
- then sets D to be /usr

It also can't make its mind up whether there are 8 or 16 partitions.

My suspicion is that is just broken - so I can't make it worse.
I'll probaly leave it as an mbr install.  So C is the netbsd partition,
D the whole disk and E /usr.
