So far, so good.  I've run cvsup on the ports collection and portupgrade
is rebuilding kdebase with no problems.
I mounted an msdos partition, listed the directory, and unmounted it --
that's about all I was willing to risk on an untested fs for now.
One odd thing:  I just cvsup'd the DFly sources again, which checked
out a whole bunch of vfs-related kernel source files.  I assumed that
cvsup just reverted the patch I applied a while ago -- so I went to
reapply the patch and got errors saying the patch was already applied.
The only way I can explain that is if you just committed the patch
to HEAD sometime between 0400-0430 this morning -- is this right?
