Herb asked me to look at PR 33112 a vnd problem. Susposedly a compress
problem, but I think it is a basic vnd problem.
When no disk label is found vnd0a should be set to whole disk,
i.e. the same as vnd0d. This is not ocurring. As near as I can tell
the proper data is being passed to the mbr scanner, but results
have changed since 3.1 kernel. I think this might be because no error message
is now set by the scanner on an all 0's block.
