Really!? I didn't know. IIRC, 1.5.x couldn't be booted. Someone added support
for backward compatibility? Maybe I should take a look at the archives of
NetBSD mailing lists...

The principle is that you should add a new feature only if the feature is
critical. So if you think support for UFS2 is essential, I don't object.

But, please don't modify fsys_ffs.c. Instead, create a new file fsys_ufs2.c or
something. I don't want to break support for FFS, because it is used not only
by *BSD.
