Oh No!  More Fail Systems
There is no kernel module for ufs and the ffs module therefore cannot depend on 
it.  However, it is possible to compile a kernel without ufs builtin making the 
ffs kernel module worthless in such scenarios.

The same goes for the ext2fs kernel module, which should depend both on ffs and 
the non-existent ufs, but does so on neither.

The only case when either are useful currently is if only one of them is 
compiled into the kernel (bringing in ufs) and the other is loaded as a module.
