"How many opens are happening?" This is going to happen whenever a disk
is opened and there were no previously open parititions. That's pretty
There should probably be some state kept in the cpu_disklabel, to prevent
the warning from being issued more than once, and readdisklabel, etc.
should probably take a "struct disk" as an argument, not a dev_t, so that
the name of the disk can be printed.
