Yes, sorry; I forgot that FreeBSD's dd does not stat its endpoints
to see if they are devices, and gets the st_blksize and insists
that it be used (at least internally) for S_IFBLK and S_IFCHR
values of st_mode.

Perhaps it should be unbroken by someone with a commit bit and/or
the ability to have their send-pr's not rejected as relay SPAM.
