[mounting disk from dead Sun-3/60 on i386]
The shoebox has a Sun3 PROM label on it, and the FFS filesystem
written by the Sun is in native CPU order: big-endian. The i386 is
little-endian. That won't work.
Manuel Bouyer has ambi-endian FFS support just about done, but that's
in -current, not 1.3.x, and I dont think it solves the label problem.
