Yes ... The disklabel ioctl suite will definitely have to change with the
New World Order.
Matthew Green suggested something interesting ... Perhaps a library that
could live in userland (so that mdec programs could use it) and is copied
up to the kernel (a'la libc/libkern) ... this could help to address a
concern that Jonathan Stone had, that being that it would be nice to have
userland utilities to do cross-disklabeling from non-NetBSD platforms.
