   No problem. When newdosfs(8) sets the number of reserved sectors to
   2 instead of the usual 1, the second reserved sector can be used to
   store timestamps and other usefull information (should of course be
   protected by a magic number and checksum).

This would not work with original MS-DOS created filesystems, possibly
coexisting on a dual use harddisk or inserted into the floppy disk,
would it?
