This kernel doesn't have the autodetect code, obviously.
With the autodetect code the error message would have something like
Aug 31 11:59:50 30_DEMO_697 /netbsd: wd1g: LBA48 bug writing fsbn 216369024 of
216369024-216369151 (wd1 bn 268435391; cn 266304 tn 15 sn 14), retrying
Aug 31 11:59:51 30_DEMO_697 /netbsd: wd1: soft error (corrected)
The autodetect code has been commited to HEAD on 2007/09/16,
and pulled up to various branches one month later.
