Except that the dev, rdev and size fields have (I think) changed sizes.
[nope, just dev and rdev...].

* As far as I know, the file system format used for Solaris 2.x is the same as
* that used by SunOS 4.1 (which NetBSD supports).
* I remember seeing this somewhere on-line, but now I can't find the information,
* although I've confirmed this myself (moving a disk from a 4.1.2 to a 5.5
* system, without any problems).
