disklabel -W ?

Actually I almost removed -W / -N flags from disklabel(8) some time ago,
as I did understand from Matts commit messages that this was removed;
I found out that these flags are still working though.
Must have misread commit messages & and didn't read the code.

On similar lines: it seems like it is neede to reboot DragonFly
when changing between 32-bit and 64-bit disklabels, can this be correct?
After erasing a disklabel (eg 32-bit), using dd, disklabel64 fails,
as kernel still have copy of 32-bit disklabel.
