I wasn't suggesting it is needed, nor need that myself either, so my
mail was all about getting clue of reality above my vague memories,
and to maybe get some discussion if "invalid argument." is enough of
an error msg, when it seems it might possibly in some obscure case
get further(? likely not), esp. if there's no flag in disklabel telling
it has wrong-endian?
the disklabel output on amd64 did look close enough on first quick look,
that i wasn't doubting myself hard enough to go for a read @/sys/.
luckily i have only one octeon, or i'd be troubled for the fact i have
only two kinds of usb sticks in use, and they all look alike, so it's
easy to mix them laying on the desk waiting for use.. well, that's my prob.
