That's certainly not what someone (charles, I think) has said to me in
In particular, on the Alpha, the native disklabel needs to be
checksummed for the ROM to like it. otherwise, it's exactly the same
as a native disklabel...
The person I was talking to indicated that he didn't think it was
appropriate to have the kernel ioctl's do that checksumming... It's
now an #ifdef in disklabel(8).
