Fall back to VOP_READ/VOP_WRITE if the simulated disk has smaller
sectors than the underlying filesystem and VOP_STRATEGY would fail.
What are the chances of getting a pullup on that?
I built a -current server and tried the operation. It worked fine. I
will try to patch my 7.1.0_PATCH system with this and see if that was
the critical change.
Well, so much for that idea. Patching vnd.c with that commit caused the
system to hang immediately when I accessed the virtual drive rather than
some time later when I copied a sparse file.
However, -current works so something has been fixed. Maybe I need to
copy the current file and header over and not just that one change.
