It counds good to me; my only concern would be that the fact that
newfs_ffs is currently called `newfs' didn't cause any problems; since
there are a lot more of them than options to mount(8).  Does the new
newfs just pass on all its options besides fs-type to newfs_xxx, or do the
options to newfs_ffs no longer directly work with newfs?
