the chs-ubc2 branch was fairly stable the last time I did anything with it
(back around january), tho it's pretty out of date at this point.
I started adding the infrastructure for non-512-byte-sector devices in
that branch, but I didn't actually test that since I didn't have any
appropriate devices available, so I don't know if it worked or not.

in the past few weeks I've started making time to work on UBC again,
and I'll post on tech-kern when I've got something for others to
play with.  I'm hoping that will be within another few weeks.
