Bug #2788: ioctl GSLICEINFO: Not working for vnode slice

* Author: mneumann
* Status: New
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: Kernel
* Target version: 
Execution of "newfs_msdos /dev/vn0s2" results in the following error:

newfs_msdos: ioctl (GSLICEINFO): Inappropriate ioctl for device
newfs_msdos: /dev/vn0s2: can't get slice info

Complete example that fails:

truncate -s 1G disk
cat <<EOS | fdisk -p disk -B -f -
p 1 165 63 2080387
p 2 12 2000450 88000 
a 1

vnconfig vn0 disk
newfs_msdos /dev/vn0s2

When run on /dev/vn0, newfs_msdos works as expected.
